A creative, inclusive and world-class school for students of improvisation
Improv Theatre Sydney (ITS) is a creative, inclusive and world-class school for students of improvisation.
Improvisation is a collaborative method of creating live spontaneous theatre that is always funny, often touching and frequently poignant. Players conceive original scenes in the moment, spontaneously discovering ideas, relationships and worlds between them, based on a stimulus from the audience.
Improv is by its nature participatory, and is emboldened by a diversity within its audiences and performers. ITS aims to provide a space where all people can perform together, embracing the mosaic of Sydney’s multiculturalism, religious plurality, gender and sexual diversity and thriving in the plethora of ideas they provide.
ITS runs a 6-level workshop series from start to festival-bound ensemble as well as specialty workshops for those with experience and one-off workshops highlighting specific skills of improv, performance and personal development.
From 2-hour workshops, 2-day seminars to 6-month continued programs, ITs can design a module to cater to your company’s specific needs. Drop us a line below with how we can work with your business.

Release your inner-whatever you want. Find easy ways to access free flow of thought, trust and hone your story-telling intuition and do it all in a cozy environment, creating a core ensemble. We work with the basics of improv lord Viola Spolin’s concepts to get comfortable with the group mind. This class is great for people just starting off with improv or improvisers and actors who want to break habits and get back to simple, basic fun.
Before every term, there’s a free taster of what we do at Giant Dwarf Theatre, with an opportunity to audition to head straight into level two straight afterwards. Sign up to the mailing list and our social media below to hear about it.
Working with Cale, Edan and the Improv Theatre Sydney team was simply amazing. They worked closely with us to shape the experience around our needs and delivered a fun and memorable improv experience that helped everyone become more comfortable with the concept of failure. By the end everyone had laughed, learned, and really started to see failure as an opportunity.
It was definitely different from the usual talks we usually attend at the lab. Super interactive and totally engaging.
Improv Theatre Sydney facilitators proved all of entertaining, interesting and left players and staff with some relevant lessons, both for cricket performance and for communicating and relating in life. I would not hesitate to recommend the event, and Improv Theatre Sydney as facilitators, and I would certainly do it again.
Cale and the team took time to listen and understand our needs. What surprised me was how comfortably they integrated into our team for the entire time we worked together. If you are looking to lift the level of collaboration and personal confidence or engage your team in a fun, positive and meaningful way I recommend you reach out to ITs.
