Celebrity Theatresports – comedy for a new Indigenous cause!

David Callan and Jon Williams

Celebrity Theatresports is the night the stars come out to play for the funniest fundraiser of the year!

Twelve celebrities and twelve Theatresports champions (paired in celebrity-champion combinations) take to the stage without a script to make up comedy scenes on the spot from audience suggestions. In a series of hilarious games, challenges and comedy skits – from songs and poems to scenes in all kinds of styles – teams compete for laughs and the judge’s scores.

Celebrity Theatresports draws on a wide range of material, from contemporary events, affairs, and popular culture to obscure films, and the tv guide.

This year’s show is raising money for Impro Australia’s new Indigenous Theatresports Youth Fund – aimed at bringing free Theatresports shows and training to indigenous youth across the state.

Jon Williams, the director of the show, says that with celebrities such as The X-Files’ “lone gunman” Dean Haglund, and Jay Laga’aia (the legend from Star Wars, Home and Away, The Lion King (musical), and Play School), this year’s show promises to be the best yet.

Celebrity Theatresports is an annual event that gets bigger and better with every show. Whether you have never been or are a regular attendee, this year’s show is not one to be missed. The promise of spontaneous comedy and fundraising for a worthy cause makes for a good night out. (RP)
