MissImp 20th Anniversary Celebration Jam – Thursday 18 October 2018

MISSIMP 20TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION JAM

Nottingham’s homegrown improvised theatre company MissImp celebrates its twentieth year with a whole weekend of comedy entertainment! Featuring five shows across two venues, ranging from full musicals to lightning fast skits, plus two free workshops, it’s sure to be a birthday like no other!

On Thursday, 18th October we’re thrilled to take over the newly reopened Malt Cross, where the original MissImp cast from 20 years ago are reuniting for one night only, followed by a showcase of our top talent, and a jam where anyone and everyone can take part!

MissImp has existed for TWENTY years! In that time we’ve come a long way, from our very first show ever, at the Malt Cross, to um… the Malt Cross! Tonight the whole of the pub is ours, and we present a celebration show featuring the original line up of MissImp (or Mission: Improbable as it was back then), followed by a titanic Gorilla Burger jam show in the bar.

This will be the perfect night to find out what the Nottingham improvised comedy scene is, and for everyone who’s ever attended a drop-in, watched a show, or appeared on stage with us. Let’s bring it all together and have a wicked night of comedy and spontaneity.

This is the celebration you’ve been looking for.

“TOTALLY BIZARRE, FUNNY AND ENTHRALLING.” – Nottingham Evening Post

On Friday, 19th October we present a double bill of improvised comedy at the Nottingham Playhouse: at 7pm, The Vortex, our sell-out all-female team, will perform an hour-long play inspired by a single word from the audience. At 9pm, The Vox Pops take the stage, creating comedy from true stories – as told by special guest, Annie (of Annie’s Burger Shack)!

“UNIQUE PERFORMANCES THAT HAVE THE AUDIENCE IN STITCHES.” – LeftLion

Our final night on Saturday, 20th October continues the celebration, with Rhymes Against Humanity bringing an entirely improvised musical to Nottingham Playhouse at 7pm! Our weekend concludes with Smash Night at 9pm, pitching our monthly show from The Angel onto the Neville Studio stage for a special performance filled with improvisers old and new.

Millions of Voices: The Improvised Star Wars Show at Nottingham Playhouse 24 June 2017

Star Wars is 40 years old today, but for most of us it’s as fresh, gorgeous and stunning as ever. But we’ve still never found out what happened on Alderaan before it was destroyed! We plan to change that. On 24 June we’re bringing Millions of Voices: The Improvised Star Wars Show back to Nottingham Playhouse.

Alderaan is under threat of destruction by the evil Empire. Blissfully unaware of their fate, Alderaan’s people carry on with their daily lives, plots, adventures and romances. These are their stories…

“A fun filled hour of geeky entertainment.
– Midlands Improv

“The bright centre of the universe.”
– Nottingham Comedy Reviews

“Better than The Phantom Menace.”
– Everyone who has seen Star Wars Episode I

Notts TV’s ace reporter Richard Minkley was kind enough to join as in rehearsal this week – find out more in the video below! Or watch it at Notts TV.

Feel the Force! We sold out last time we were at the Nottingham Playhouse, so there’s no better time to join the Rebellion.

Millions of Voices – The Improvised Star Wars Show – Saturday 10 September 2016 – Frazer Theatre

Star Wars: Comedy Theatre Unleashed

After selling out the Nottingham Playhouse, MissImp bring their newest show to Knaresborough’s Frazer Theatre for one night only.

“A Fun Filled Hour of Geeky Entertainment”

“The Bright Centre of the Universe”

“Better than The Phantom Menace”

Millions of Voices is a touching, funny and entirely improvised show filled with normal Alderaanian people going about their lives, completely unaware that the Empire is about to blow their planet to smithereens.

Never heard of Alderaan? No worries – it’s never even mentioned again in the Star Wars series. In fact, you don’t need to have seen any of the films to enjoy this show – it’s made up on the spot and changes every time.
