NORTH V SOUTH: THEATRESPORTS BATTLE OF CANBERRA

AN IMPRO ACT PRESENTATION

FRIDAY 20 MAY @ 7.30PM
FRIDAY 17 JUNE @ 7.30PM
SATURDAY 25 JUNE @ 7.30PM

TICKETS $20
GROUP 8+: $15

Canberra's bloodiest battle, North vs South Theatresports™ returns to its ancestral home, The Street Theatre, in 2016; Friday May 20, Friday June 17, and Saturday Jun 25, to decide which side of the lake will have the bragging rights for the next 12 months. Are you a Northern Hipster or a Southern Snowbunny? New teams each night!

Canberrans will be able to revel in a night of entertainment fit for the Colosseum as Theatrical Gladiators from each side of the lake compete with the same vigour as a State of Origin clash. Teams of improvisers will compete in a series of challenges resulting in comedy, theatre and music created at will to the roar of the crowd.

Theatresports™ is a fast and fun-filled theatre ride which combines wit, comedy, drama and fearless public performance. Given that Canberra houses some of the country’s quickest thinkers who are capable of providing extremely creative answers to the curliest of queries it is appropriate that Theatresports™ is used to settle Canberra’s most important question – ‘Which side of the lake is best?’

A night of good, old-fashioned parochial discrimination, in this high-energy form theatrical fun, is assured so come along to Theatresports™ North vs South and cheer your side of the lake!
