Following the huge success of Austen Found and Enid Untold, ConArtists are back to deliver Great Improvisations as they invent a brand new Dickensian theatrical every night. Mrs Plodswallop or perhaps Mr Smigglesquelch will bring Victorian England alive, complete with urchins, prostitutes and gruel.  You’ll be wanting some more as it’ll be the best of times….and the best of times.  

ConArtists have been entertaining Aucklanders since 1987 and show no signs of slowing down.  The company members have performed improv all over the world, have represented their country with Theatresports™ and also extensively toured New Zealand.  They boast some of the most experienced and hilarious improvisers in the country, so you should really see what all the fuss is about.  

Cast members have been featured in Almighty Johnsons, Gloss, Lord of the Rings, In My Father’s Den, Good Morning, Shortland St, Outrageous Fortune, Xena, Hercules, Spartacus, 7 Days and Would I Lie to You.  SO they’re quite good. 

“A marvellous time is had by all. Jane Austen would turn in her grave with delight! … Rollicking fun!” Austen Found, Rip It Up Adelaide February 2010

"Theatre Sports meets Enid Blyton, with a dash of rabid patriotism and a dollop of uranium in this jolly old lark from the ConArtists." Theatreview 2011 - Enid Untold

“an engaging entertainment full of fun and frivolity.” Austen Found: The Undiscovered Musicals of Jane Austen, NZ Herald, October 2010

“…it is clear that the ConArtists are the professional, seasoned variety of improv artists. They don’t miss a beat.” Theatreview, Sex, Lies and Improvise July 2010

Cast includes Penny Ashton, Madeleine Lynch, Clare Kelso, Lori Dungey
