The Understudies is a completely improvised comedy musical that has just enjoyed a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2017. Based entirely on audience suggestions, this long-form improv is a whirlwind of comical choreography and vocal prowess concerning the most mundane of objects and outlandish activities. With live musical accompaniment, this is an hour of energetic, animated and hilariously frivolous comedy.
Do you like comedy? Do you enjoy musical theatre? Do you enjoy singing about the most random things? The Understudies workshop will introduce participants to the process the players undergo to practice their comedy alongside the musical accompaniment, as well as advice on improvised performing. The Understudies are also currently looking for some new players so if this interests you make sure you get on down to Bedlam for this fantastic workshop session!
