For the second year in a row, the award-winning comedy improvisation group Improguise will be donating their time and combined talent to raise money for Rape Crisis. This annual fundraising event, called the Soap-a-Thon, will leave the audience in stitches as the actors improvise scenes from a soap opera for 15 hours without stopping.
On Saturday 26 October 2013 from 9am to midnight, the actors will take to the stage to perform 10 seventy-minute soap opera style episodes. Each episode will advance the medieval fantasy storyline, loosely based on popular shows like Game of Thrones and classic movies like Camelot and Excalibur. While we would love to tease you with some plot giveaways, we can’t! Because no one, not even the actors, know what is going to happen! Maybe we will run into some kings and queens, knights and noblewomen, maybe we will see murder, treachery, and magic but who knows? What we can tell you for sure is that you’ll experience some side-splitting comedy and world-class entertainment at the Soap-a-Thon!
Please join us at The Little Theatre, on UCT’s Hiddingh Campus, and support us. Tickets for each episode cost R60. The whole family is welcome and there is a discount for bookings of more than four episodes. Refreshments will be available on sale.
