TheatreSports is hilarious improvised comedy, it’s the high-octane, non-stop, laugh-a-minute show where you, the audience, decide on the show you’re going to see! It’s pure improvised theatre, performed by two teams of absurdly talented actors.  Each show is a once-off adventure of spontaneously invented scenes, stories and music, based entirely on your suggestions
Every Tuesday @ 8:30pm
R40 – R50
