Theatresports is growing in popularity in Dunedin and here at King’s. Every Friday afternoon in Terms 2 and 3 we have a large group of boys who meet up and sharpen their improvisational skills with their peers. We also meet up with students from around Dunedin on a regular basis and take part in workshops run by Dunedin’s professional troupe, “Improsauraus”.
“Improsauras” also run an Otago competition which we compete in.
Students of all ages and abilities are welcome to join Theatresports. Our aim is to aim to encourage participation and friendly competition, as well as improving skills and expanding knowledge.
Many of our members have never played before and relish the opportunity to join with a group of like-minded students who enjoy the challenge that improvisational theatre provides.
In 2016, King’s won the Otago/ Southland competition and went on to the South Island finals where they placed 2nd out of 38 teams.
Gray Gibson and Sam van der Weerden were selected to join the Dunedin professional improv group, “Improsauraus”.
