Something new for Light UP! A barmy challenge to have performers improvise in turns, team and battles for 15 hours straight to raise funds and awareness of our current crowdfunding campaign to raise £15K to secure our future and UP Studios.
Each hour there is a new theme and new games. It will be a hugely exciting and informal, welcoming atmosphere for participants and audiences with challenges such as:
- Film Dub
- Musical Theatre Improv
- Change the Channel
- Dramatic Deaths and more!
We are also so thrilled that Katy Eyre, who worked with us for many years is coming back to run the 8-9am slot. I am sure lots of Katy's previous students will be thrilled to see her.
Each of our team members have slots they are running and we are all looking forward to such a jam packed day of fun, doing a good deed and brushing off those improv skills at the same time!
Light UP is inviting current and past students, families, friends and anyone who would like to try their hand at a little improv for a good cause. Our mission will be to laugh until we drop as we embark on a 15 hours improvisation challenge. Why 15 hours? Because we are raising £15K through our crowdfunder, as we’ve secured a £10K grant to reach our £25K total by 2/11. We are hoping this event will draw more support and media attention to help us reach our target. What is an Improv-a-thon?
You’ve heard of a swim-a-thon, you might have heard of a read-a-thon. But what is an Improv-a-thon? For anyone looking to work out their funny bone this is the ‘a-thon’ for you! 15 hours of improvisation, each hour themed and packed with a variety of games, prompts and activities for participants to take part in. Pick and choose what you do, come for an hour or stay for the day, root on your players from the audience or join in with your friends and form a team.
This barmy challenge is one that will make the Light UP history books so for all our members near and far, old and new, for their families and friends supporting from the wings and for anyone in the community this is one you won’t want to miss! Just say YES to help brighten your day and Light UP’s future.
