FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Theatre Sports is Improvisational theatre, which takes many forms. Players use different formats or games where they must create a scene out of a theme or idea given to them only a few seconds prior to beginning. Best known as improv or impro, it’s like acting without a net.
Are you guys really making all that stuff up?
Absolutely! FITS players train regularly of course, but beyond a decision about which kinds of formats the group will perform, nothing else is planned.
Do you make the audience do anything?
Not at all. You make suggestions, relax and watch the show. Sometimes we look for a brave volunteer or two to make a slightly longer suggestion, but we would never ‘pick on’ anyone who didn’t want to go onstage!
Can I play?
We offer lessons. Look for courses that are running at the moment under current enrolment. Why learn improvisation? Need more information? Check out our Education page!
Do I have to make a reservation?
No, you can just show up. But you can also make a reservation to guarantee that you will get a seat!
No. Our shows are completely improvised and that we have no idea what the content is going to be, though we usually don’t go out of our way to be raunchy or explicit.
How long does the show last?
The show lasts anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and 15 minutes. Since every show is completely improvised, times will vary.
I went to a show and it looks like fun. Can I perform onstage with FITS?
TLS Frankfurt offer classes to learn about improvisation and holds auditions regularly for new performers. Please sign up for our mailing list in order to receive regular updates.
