Soothplayers Completely Improvised Potter

Soothplayers Completely Improvised Potter

Guaranteed to make you laugh or your money back!

Completely Improvised Potter returns to Melbourne International Comedy Festival after a sold-out 2017 debut. Watch as they invent hilarious new Harry Potter adventures before your very eyes. Using only an audience suggested title, drawn from the goblet of fire*, of what could’ve been a Potter book (but wasn’t), Completely Improvised Potter will show you a year at Hogwarts like you’ve never seen it before!

Unrehearsed, unplanned and made up completely on the spot, delight as you meet new Defence Against the Dark Arts teachers, brew polyjuice and maybe, just maybe, defeat He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named!

More magical than Merlin and funnier than a trip to Zonko’s, Completely Improvised Potter’s cast features members of Melbourne’s premiere Improv companies – The Big HOO-HAA!, Improv Conspiracy, as well as graduates of Chicago’s iO Theatre.

So pour yourself a butterbeer and manage your mischief quickly – these shows will sell out!

*not actual fire, for OH&S reasons.
