About

The audience suggests a title, and seconds later the curtain opens on a brand new, completely improvised and totally hilarious musical.

A show like no other! Now a monthly show at The Alex Theatre St Kilda, Impromptunes has been wowing audiences with their unique brand of improvised musical mayhem nation-wide since 2013. Not content with dialogue, songs, music and dances all made up on the spot, these incredibly talented improvisers work with a live three-piece band too so that you “…laugh, until you don’t think you can laugh any more, and then you will keep laughing.” (You Should See It Melbourne)

Twice nominated for Best Comedy in the Australian Podcast Awards, Impromptunes has performed sell-out shows in festivals throughout Australia and in Edinburgh Fringe.

Don’t miss out on your chance to see Australia’s funniest musical improvisers in action. With over 400 brand-new musicals to their name, you’re in good (jazz) hands!

Impromptunes - Edinburgh Fringe Fundraiser Double Bill

Impromptunes is hitting the international stage once again in 2024, presenting not one, but two improvised shows as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August this year! It’s an incredible opportunity for the team to present their world-class work, alongside some of the greatest in the biz.

We’d love to share a little teaser of our new work “Naughty Broadway” in our home of Melbourne before we go, and to invite our loyal fans to support the team with the fundraiser effort. Although cast members will make their own way overseas, Impromptunes will be covering the costs of accommodation for the duration of the festival (a quick Google will reveal prices that will terrify children) as well as venue hire, gear hire and registration fees – all that is before we even start to sell the show.

So we invite you and all your loved ones to fill the amazing space at our home, The Alex Theatre St Kilda, for a fun and frivolous night of fun-raising (we’re the first people to ever coin that phrase, don’t google it) in a unique 2-act improv experience! Games, interactions, auctions and improvised musical mayhem abounds.

Act 1 – Impromptunes: The Completely Improvised Musical. Impromptunes’ flagship format, a musical made up on the spot based on a single audience suggestion.

Act 2 – Naughty Broadway. A late night adults-only interactive improv musical where performers can be cancelled at any moment!

Cast: Alexia Brinsley, Amelia June, Brenna Glazebrook, Brenton Gardiner, Emmet NicholsBand: David Peake (piano) and Facu Alvarez (drums)

Can’t wait to see you there!
