Heads Might Roll: a Nursery Original

– Satire
– Exploring cultural and societal issues and themes
– Improvisation as theatre
– Using drama to intensify comedy
– Experimenting with form
– Character-focused pieces

Apply by 8pm on Friday 5th January, for an audition on Saturday 6th January!


Castles in the Air – improv inspired by Studio Ghibli: a Nursery Original

Let’s tumble into the world of Studio Ghibli together!  We will be improvising stories in the spirit of the films of Hayao Miyazaki, about flawed characters responding emotionally to rich, and sometimes magical, environments. Improvisers will need experience of long-form improvisation and to be a team player. You will also need some (but not necessarily all!) of the following skills:

– Playfulness
– Emotional honesty
– Energy and commitment to characters and scene work
– Flexibility
– Attention to detail
– Giving / building on bold offers

Apply by 5pm on Sunday 14th January, for an audition on Monday 15th or Thursday 18th January!
