The Early Early Late Show
On the Tonkin and Taylor main stage at The Court Theatre, Christchurch
08 – 18 July 2015
Christchurch’s favourite Court Jesters bring all the chaos and fun of the late night improvised comedy show Scared Scriptless to the family-friendly time of 6:30pm as part of KidsFest 2015.
Songs, scenes and games will all be made up on-the-spot by the cleverest, funniest, silliest comedians we could find. The audience will be called on to give them a suggestion and they’ll turn it into comedy!
What Now hosts Ronnie Taulafo, Chris Kirk and Bianca Seinafo will be making guest appearances on selected nights. Before joining What Now, Bianca was last seen at The Court performing in Goldilocks and The Three Bears and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
The players are all excited to perform but no one is quite sure what is meant to happen. Each Jester will be given a set of instructions from ‘The Boss’ but no one’s instructions are the same! Luckily these capable comedians work best when they’re panicking, so the audience will be in for a treat as the Jesters scramble to make things work.
Suitable for ages 8+.
