With over 3000 shows at the world’s biggest arts festival, here at The ReviewsHub,we want to make the job of choosing your Edinburgh Festival Fringe shows that little bit easier. So here’s Impromptunes answering our annual Five Fast Fringe Questions.
In one sentence tell us about your show.
Impromptunes is a completely improvised musical, based on a single audience suggestion of a title.
What made you decide to bring a show this year?
Performing in Edinburgh Fringe has been a long-term goal of our company.We’ve been performing around Australia for several years now and want to share our fun, silly show with the world. We’ve got a great reputation in Australia and feel like Fringe is the next step for us.
Any advice you’ve heard or can give to anyone coming to the Fringe for the first time?
Apparently it’s the best/worst month ever… We’ve no doubt it’s going to be the experience of a lifetime we just have to remember to eat and sleep at some point so we can make it through the epic season.
What makes your show stand out from all of the others on offer? (Don’t say that it’s because you’re in it!)
An eight-strong cast of professionally trainedmusical theatre improvisersmaking their way over from Australia has to count for something. Our show is a lot of fun to be part of, as well as to watch, and sinceevery show is different each experience is completely unique.
What show, other than your own, do you not want to miss?
We’rereally excited to see other improv acts do their thing. Lights! Camera! Improvise! and Showstopper! have done really well out of Fringe… Maybe we should put an exclamation mark in our name too? Fringe isa melting pot of exciting talent and new work, and we want to see as much of it as we can, but particularly similar shows like Baby Wants Candy andAustentatious (improvised Jane Austen).
Finally, the boring but essential bit…
