Impro Melbourne is the longest running and most diverse improvisational theatre company in Melbourne.
Our shows are entertaining, unique, funny and challenging theatrical performances focused on exploring and furthering the use of improvisation as an art form.
We produce our own devised shows and international works from comedic to dramatic, musical to multi-media, genre to games, adult to theatre for young audiences. We approach all of our productions with passion, commitment and integrity and we pride ourselves on making inclusive and bold improvised theatre that represents a wide range of stories and experiences with accuracy and compassion.
Our work is founded on the philosophy of Keith Johnstone (author of the best selling impro books IMPRO and Impro For Storytellers) and we are the only company in Victoria licensed to perform his formats Theatresports™, Maestro Impro™, and Gorilla Theatre™.
Formed by Russell Fletcher and Christine Keogh in 1996 it is now run by Co-Artistic Directors Patti Stiles & Katherine Weaver, General Manager Jenny Lovell and the Impro Melbourne Committee of Management.
Impro Melbourne values diversity within our ensemble, workshops, staff, volunteers and audiences. We extend a warm welcome to people of different ethnicities, religions, sexualities, genders, abilities, ages and backgrounds.
