City Council: The Improv Show

Friday 6th-Friday 27th September 2019

Welcome to the Noslen City Council! (It's Nelson spelled backwards... see what we did there?) It's election year in Noslen and the council office is heating up in this improvised soap opera set in a fictional local NZ government that has absolutely nothing in common with, say... Nelson. Be a fly on the wall as they make decisions and see the chaos unfold between the building consent team, the communications manager who is in charge of fielding all calls from the one landline, and the two sitting city councillors. What exactly does the External Relationships Logistics Coordination Manager do? Will the IT guy ever make with his band and get out of Noslen? Will the Mayor get re-elected? Even we don't know because it's all made up!

Also, one REAL candidate running in our real local elections will come and have a short debate with our fictional councillors each show.

People's Republic of Improv is Nelson's premier improv troupe. Previously the in-house company of Ghost Light, they have now explored other venues since Ghost Light has sadly closed. In September they will be performing in Studio One, Rutherford Mews.

Tickets $14 or $19 online, $20 at the door, EFTPOS available.
