Canberra's bloodiest battle, North vs South Theatresports™ returns to its ancestral home, The Street Theatre, in 2017;  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, 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 theatrical fun, is assured, so come along to Theatresports™ North vs South and cheer your side of the lake!

 

N.B. ALL AGES SHOW. Bring the family!
