Pick Your Own Fairytale: new improvised family storytelling shows at the Bristol Improv Theatre

“Once upon a time, was a brave dragon. Or fairy. Or dancing tree. Yeah! And one day…”

I am really pleased to tell you about ‘Pick Your Own Fairytale’, a fun, new improvised storytelling show for families in Bristol.

Pick Your Own Fairytale will take place at 11am on Sundays 12th, 19th, 26th of August at the Bristol Improv Theatre in Clifton.

The shows will be led by the cast and creators of Christmas 2017’s ‘Pick Your Own Panto’ who are back with a new improvised adventure, packed with songs, stories and silliness.

The audience will lead the story, as the performers improvise a completely original adventure each and every time.

Want to see the hero make friends with a dragon? Serenade a witch who lives down a well? Eat a whole tree of peaches and fart in the king’s face?

Pick Your Own Fairytale will bring children’s stories to life, and create a show that is completely unique – never seen before, and never to be seen again.

Not only is the entire story based on your suggestions and ideas, every single scene is interactive!

The show has been devised by a unique team of performers, educators and children’s entertainers from across Bristol, united by a love of improvisation, storytelling and making children laugh.

The cast includes performers from Closer Each Day: The Improvised Soap Opera, Mr Gotalot’s Gotalot Shop and This Is Your Musical.

The Bristol Improv Theatre is a young and exciting not-for-profit arts organisation, theatre and school, and a regular host to both rising stars and renowned acts, including Olivier award-winners The Showstoppers, the star-studded Austentatious, YouTube stars and West End regulars The RH Experience, and Edinburgh hit Racing Minds.

The Bristol Improv Theatre boasts the UK’s first dedicated venue for improvised comedy, and includes a beautiful 115-seat flexible studio theatre, a smaller second stage in a cabaret-style 70-capacity licensed bar, and two large office/rehearsal spaces.
