Since 2005, Impro Australia has been running the Theatresports® Schools Challenge (TSC) – the only schools drama competition in NSW!
It brings together representative teams from over 100 independent and government schools across Sydney, Wollongong, the Central Coast, Bowral and Nowra to perform together in the spirit of joyful improvisation.
Teams of 3-5 students from each school create 1, 2 and 3 minute improvised scenes live on stage, judged and scored by our team of improvisation professionals. Theatresports® increases the students’ confidence, listening skills and teamwork, as well as strengthening their problem solving abilities and creative thinking, all in a hilarious, fun and supportive environment.
And this year we’re extending to primary schools!
The TSC has 4 divisions:
Intermediate (high school years 9-10) – held in Term 2
Senior (high school years 11-12) – held in Term 2
Registrations open Term 1
Junior (high school years 7-8) – held in Term 4
*NEW* Primary (primary school years 5-6) – held in Term 4
Registrations open in Term 3
Each team competes in a local regional heat. The top scoring teams (half) then go through to a regional semi-final. The top 2 teams from each semi-final compete in the Theatresports® Schools Challenge Grand Final on Sun 23 June in Sydney (2pm Intermediate, 5pm Senior).
N.B. In the Junior & Primary divisions each team competes twice, in a heat & a final.
