The Wishing Tree: 7-11 Dec, The Garden Club

The Wishing Tree

the wishing tree wit wellington improvisation troupeFollowing a popular season in 2009, the Wellington Improvisation Troupe (WIT) is bringing The Wishing Tree to the Garden Club.

Based on a Japanese myth of love, luck and fate, The Wishing Tree has been performed around the world from Belgium to Seattle, inspiring performers and audiences alike.

Director Christine Brooks describes the concept as “a different kind of improv. A lot of Improv shows are a bit of fun, but can end up b...eing pretty disposable, like a comedy version of a one night stand. The Wishing Tree creates improvised theatre that I want to remember in the morning”.

Wishes, supplied anonymously by the audience, are brought to life by the improvisers, providing the inspiration for scenes where the wishes unfold – sometimes for good, sometimes for ill and sometimes just for a laugh.

Starring WIT regulars Christine Brooks, Derek Flores, Ralph McCubbin Howell, Merrilee McCoy, Mark Scott, Simon Smith and Paul Sullivan.

8-9pm
