Hey everybody, switch off that video game and come to see our totally unscripted, spontaneously live and awesomely improvised show about… video games. From Pac-Man to Pokémon, from crushing the candy to saving the princess, our players will put you in the game!

The latest release of Improvilicious features everything you want from a video game, but live on stage. Extraordinary characters, fantastic worlds, epic challenges, weird sound effects and even cute animations – all created by two performers, based on suggestions from the audience, via a magical interface called 'a stage'. (Expect to see a few audience members sucked into the game Jumanji-style.) No tricky consoles – just shout out commands – and graphics so good you’ll think it’s the real thing.

And because it’s improvised, every show is a new and unique awesome adventure!

With more atmosphere than your lounge room, and less technology than an Atari 2600, Improvilicious is impro-larious school holiday fun.

Our top-scoring players are Amberly Cull (The Big HOO-HAA!, Impromptunes), Cassie Daly (Shania Choir, and every Improvised Guide since 2015) and Jimmy James Eaton (Arcade Arcade, The Big HOO-HAA and TV’s Slideshow.)

Improvilicious has been delivering the laughs to everyone aged 8+ since 2014, with improvised guides to SuperheroesBFFsThe InternetHigh School and The History of Theatre.
