No-one has plans on a Monday evening, so there really isn’t any excuse why you shouldn’t head down to Blue Orange Theatre and see some Toadally Free Comedy!
Improvised comedy group Box of Frogs warmly invite you to be part of their crazy, mischievous little family for one night. There is nothing that can prepare you for the evening ahead, even the members of the group have no idea what is going to happen after the audience is settled in. But the one thing that can be guaranteed is you’ll be laughing throughout.
Sit back as a whole host of games are played out in front of you, the best part being the performers are at your mercy. You, the audience, get to decide what type of action is about to unfold on stage.
Skilled in their craft, the performers are a joy to watch both for their comedic talent but also the anticipation you feel as a new game is about to start. The only thing that is carried through is the occasional nod to a hilarious moment in a previous game, other than that, expect every game to be uniquely different, as the imagination of the improvisors is boundless.
The divide between audience and performers melts away and you are welcomed as part of this dysfunctional comedic family, breathing fresh air on the normal constraints of traditional theatre. With no shushing from other audience members, and even occasional shouting permitted in some games, it is almost like letting your hair down – well not quite but you get the gist. It is good fun and a delightful comedy night.
Regardless of whether you are a seasoned improv comedy goer, or a newbie, a night filled with unexpected audience suggestions teamed with unpredictable interpretations from the performers, no two nights are the same, so give it a try. It will definitely be something you have not seen before.
Box of Frogs’ Toadally Free Comedy show will play at the Blue Orange Theatre one last time on Monday 16 April, before moving onto The Glee Club in Birmingham on Sunday 27 May.
