The next time you see an Impro Melbourne show, once you’re settled in your seat, take a moment to look behind you. Chances are you’ll spot one of our players in the back row, armed with a notebook, trying not to attract attention. Sometimes it’s the director of the show; more often, it’s a member of the cast taking their turn in an important role: the player on notes. With few exceptions, every Impro Melbourne show has a player on notes, because we believe that every show – no matter how successful – has something to teach us.
"Impro Melbourne challenges and diversifies improvisational theatre. Images heighten the actor's imagination and the actors create relationships between the characters. You will be sure it's rehearsed because the performances are seamless. The skits are poetic, tragic, comedic, abstract, thoughtful, raunchy, provoking and original."
Jane Curtis, an Impro Melbourne student, talks about her first classes.
