Eight years ago, a handful of Beijng-based theatre lovers began meeting once a week to play improv games. Not long after, they performed in front of a small audience in a long-demolished bar near the Drum and Bell Towers. The group went on to forge a partnership with local NGO Hua Dan, and our donations have supported these wonderful people in empowering countless migrant families across China through the power of theatre.
Today, two full-sized, full-time troupes, a free, weekly, two-level Wednesday Workshops, regular international festivals and dozens of alumni spreading our message around China and the world is testament to the impact that Beijing Improv has had on the Northern Capital’s performing arts landscape.
On Saturday, November 29th, join our English Players plus special guests and celebrate Beijing Improv’s 8th birthday in our longtime partner venue Peng Hao Theatre. Cake, balloons and a rousing sing-song will accompany the return of our infamous Theatresports Showdown. Two teams will pit their wits against the clock, the MC and each other, as they vie for the title of Sultans of the Stage – using only YOUR suggestions!
The box office is now open. Due to high demand we recommend you reserve your ticket NOW!
