SPECIAL EVENT. ONE SHOW ONLY.  BOOK NOW.

Enjoy the fun of watching actors at play. "Theater Games" is a show full of fun, laughter, and inspiration. The actors have no script, just their intuition and wit to guide them.

As part of his 2018 international tour, Gary Schwartz will be touching down in Christchurch for an intense weekend of training with local actors.  The culmination of which will be a delightful showcase of local talent under the guidance of this award-winning teacher and director.

"Theater Games" are used as a fun way for actors to learn valuable acting skills, in a way that avoids self-consciousness and intellectualising.  In this playful, active state the actor discovers intuitive, inspired choices that come spontaneously. The mind is kept busy in the moment of creating or playing, rather than getting caught up pre-planning, comparing or judging choices.

The results are a joy to watch. Come and see for yourself!

SPECIAL DEAL: All tickets for FINAL SHOW (29th August), just $7!

The world is full of stories - too many to tell.

Impulse Theatre's new improvised show, Untold Stories, tells stories that have never been told before, and will never be told again.  Every scene is improvised, so every show is unique.

Rather than being chained to a script, every scene is a journey of the discovery as the actors discover who they are, their relationship to the other characters in the scene, and the moment they are living in.

UNTOLD STORIES is back at the YMCA every second Friday at 7:30pm.

Impulse Theatre's improvised show, Untold Stories, is a fun night of comedy and drama.  The actors craft together stories that have never been told before, and will never be told again.  Every scene is improvised, so every show is unique.

Rather than being chained to a script, every scene is a journey as the actors discover who they are, their relationship to the other characters in the scene, and the moment they are living in.  It's performance without a safety-net, that results in bold and sometimes bizarre scenes that will leave you breathless and wanting more.

So That Happened has ended it's run, but don't worry, we have plenty more hilarious improvised theatre for you!

This is high-risk theatre-comedy at its finest.  It's on-the-edge performance, without a safety net that results in bold and sometimes bizarre scenes that will leave you breathless and wanting more.
