Theatresports for laughs
THE Douglas region’s very own game of wit and improvisation in the tradition of Thank God You’re Here and Who’s Line Is It Anyway? will feature on the Clink Theatre stage on Saturday.
The Tropical North Theatre Company will present the Port Douglas Theatresports competition where the audience plays an active part in proceedings.
This annual giggle-fest event is now in its third year and after a sell-out success last year, the TNTC is looking forward to bringing their brand of hilarity and fun to the stage once again.
Theatresports is the dynamic game of spontaneity and humor where teams of four improvisers bring audience suggestions to life in front of a panel of judges.
There are no scripts involved and everything is devised on the night as performers do battle head-to-head.
There are plenty of prizes for participating teams and for the best audience suggestions and organisers promise ‘‘anything could happen’’.
Nicole Carnaby said the night of debauchery will be crammed full of laughter.
‘‘We have our two local celebrity judges, Bruno Bennett and Shaun Cram ready to take bribes, compliments and plain outright schmoozing from the players,’’ she said.
‘‘So far we have lots of performers scared scriptless but eager to perform.
‘‘They are a mix of Tropical North Theatre Company actors and daring locals.’’
The Theatresports competition will be held at The Clink on Saturday, starting at 7.30pm.
For those who need a little Dutch courage, the bar opens at 6.30pm and the community is encouraged to rally behind the brave performers and make a night of it.
Tickets can be bought prior to the show at Origin Espresso in Port Douglas, Goodies in Mossman or www.trybooking.com and cost are $20 or $18 members/concession.
