Scratchpad is the Bristol Improv Theatre’s new scratch night – carving out stage time for fledgling ideas, emerging groups and the shooting sprouts of talent.

Each night, a cast of professional actors and team of talented musicians produce a brand-new, hilarious, smash-hit musical inspired by YOUR stories.

The feisty improvisers from Team Bish and Team Bosh will go head-to-head chasing glory, honour and the audience’s love, in this extravanganza of games, songs and scenes.

Instant Wit! The best in improvised comedy.

A brand new dark comedy from the company that spawned Oedipuss In Boots, Reservoir Mogs, Rocky Shock Horror and Goldilock, Stock & Three Smoking Bears!

This joyful re-telling of the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale is about growing up, growing old, growing your own food and why you shouldn’t trust a very shiny red apple. Overflowing with charm and wit, this laughter-filled festive delight celebrates how we can all make the world a better place.

As the sun rises, he comes to see the bitter truth of his selfish life; learning kindness, compassion and, ultimately, the true meaning of Christmas. Dickens’ classic comedy provides the perfect accompaniment to your 2019 festivities, exploring what it might take for a hard-hearted skinflint to transform into the living embodiment of the spirit of Christmas.

This exhilarating piece of dance-theatre captures the delirious excitement of two boys waiting for Father Christmas to arrive on the most magical night of the year. There are beds to be jumped on, pillows to be fought with, seas to be sailed… On this extraordinary night, let your imagination soar right up to the stars.

Director Sue Stobbs brings you an ideal alternative to the usual Christmas show with Tim Firth’s Flint Street Nativity where the children are played by adults who later play their parents!

Bristol’s much loved Kid Carpet gives the traditional Christmas story a radical remix with big beat songs, live special effects, puppetry and animation. Prepare for the wonkiest Nativity ever!
