IN-PERSON-8 @ The Street Theatre

Eight audience members (maybe someone from your group), are interviewed on stage. Eight actors are each busy learning and copying what they can, to best impersonate their allocated audience member; how they speak, how they move, how they think. Now, the real fun begins, as the actors create an entirely unscripted play using these eight characters, by name! Will they fall in love or murder each other? No-one knows until it happens. Have you got a friend you would like to see impersonated on stage? Here’s your chance!

Presented by Impro ACT, producers of The Canberra Impro Challenge and Theatresports Nth v Sth - The Battle For Canberra.

STANDARD $28
CONCESSION/GROUP 6+ $24 ea.
