As part of our Summer programme, the Nursery is delighted to again be offering a wide selection of performance slots to improv groups new and old, from all different schools, backgrounds and styles. We are very aware of the complexity and sensitivity of programming a whole season, this is the Programming Statement from our opening season which we hope explains the process we are going through as we put together the programme. It is important to us that we balance high quality work with experimentation, remaining open to new teams and players, while also creating a strong programme which has a distinct style and ethos.
At the moment, we programme Friday and Saturday shows of either 25 or 45 minutes at the Nursery Theatre, Broadgate. To apply, you will need to tell us about your team, your show and where we can find you online. You will need to provide two photos, one square and one 10:4 ratio, and you will have the option to send us a video of your work.
For newer teams and experimental work, why not apply for Thursday Night Lights for a 15 minute slot, or check out our Sunday evening show called The Carousel, for the opportunity to play four Sundays in a row.
Summer season runs April – July.
Deadline for applications: 7th March
Improv at the Nursery Theatre, Broadgate
Right in the heart of the city, the Nursery Theatre, Broadgate is a hub for improv performance and a lab for trying things out. Our Friday and Saturday night shows are balanced between resident companies, visiting teams, one off nights and international guests.
