Bookings open - Masterclasses and Performance Programme

This week, we've had two major launches - registrations are now open for workshops and participant show tickets in New Zealand Improv Festival 2015, and all tickets are now on sale for our performance showcase at BATS Theatre!

Performance Programme

Our full programme is online both here and at BATS Theatre, and all tickets can be booked either online, in person (1 Kent Terrace, 5pm til late Tuesday to Saturday) or over the phone on 04 802 4175. Take advantage of our two-show passes to really make an evening of it - concession prices and group prices also available. 


For practitioners, NZIF 2015 offers a programme of 20 workshops over 5 days with some of the country's top improvisation teachers and performers, plus special international guests including Hsiao-Hsien Wu (Taiwan), Jason Geary (Melbourne), Rik Brown (Melbourne), Lady Fingers (Sydney), and more. Participants receive an official festival pass and access to all networking and social events.

Workshops assume participants have a basic understanding of improvisation; if you would like to discuss your suitability please contact the festival director (details below).

Please note: Upon registering you will receive instructions for payment. If your payment is not received or alternative arrangements made within 7 days, your bookings will be released.

All registrations go through this shiny new site: We've made this handy guide to to assist you with the process.

Before you start, it would also be good for you to read the Participant FAQ, and to peruse and note our new Code of Conduct. All participants are expected to be familiar with and adhere to these guidelines.
