Up, up, UP! and Away!
The Unscripted Players, or UP! has been formally launched. We are the UK’s first amateur company dedicated to improvised theatre!
UP! was created in order to give everyone the opportunity to experience this fabulous and rapidly growing art form. We aim to provide a safe, stable and supportive environment where total newbies and old-hands alike have the chance to improvise and perform!
We will produce several full productions a year, which could range from full length improvised plays, to improvised musicals to ‘Whose Line…’ style shows. We will also hold regular members-only club nights where members can try performing for the first time or experiment with something entirely new.
Members can also get involved in all other aspects of the theatre: directing, producing, sound, lighting, set design, costume, front of house…or simply join us and hang out on one of our regular social nights!
We are affiliated to the Bristol Improv Theatre who hold regular workshops in all aspects of improv and we have close links to the Bristol companies Closer Each Day and Degrees of Error.
All new members are very welcome!
