Competition Skill Building


Since 2005, Impro Australia has been running the Theatresports® Schools Challenge (TSC) – the only school's 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.
