The Completely Improvised Musical
The audience suggests a show title and seconds later the lights dim, and a brand new musical is presented for the first, last and only time.
Impromptunes combines the glamour of musical theatre with the mayhem of improvised comedy in a show like no other. Everything in this incredible show is made up on the spot – the music, the songs, the dialogue, the characters and the dancing. You’ll be on the edge of your seat throughout as the Impromptunes cast improvises a musical full of hijinks, harmonies and hilarity.
It’s unrehearsed. It’s unpredictable. It’s a whole lot of fun. It’s Impromptunes.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Formed in 2013, Impromptunes is Australia’s premier improvised musical comedy troupe. They have performed over 400 live improvised musicals in Melbourne Comedy Festival, Adelaide Fringe, Perth Fringe World and internationally at Edinburgh Festival Fringe. A regular sell out, Impromptunes has become a festival staple, as audiences can come back again and again – no two shows are the same!
The hugely talented cast is comprised of professional musical theatre performers and Melbourne’s finest improvised comedians, with training from institutions such as WAAPA, VCA, Impro Melbourne, The Imrpov Conspiracy and The Big Hoo Haa.
The improv musical fun continues all year round, with the weekly release of Impromptunes: The Podcast, which has twice been nominated for Best-Comedy Podcast at the Australian Podcast Awards (2020, 2022).
