The Suggestibles' School of Improv presents

Running time: 2 hrs including interval

The knockout improv comedy games show.

​It's gonna be funny, fun, and fundamentally improvised! Two teams of improvisers in pursuit of the Golden Cheese. Falling over themselves and each other to entertain you in a relentless battle of games, sketches and songs. Inspired by your suggestions, they must work together to fulfil their ratty dreams. 

​Who will be worthy of your applause? Your laughter? Your votes? Who will ultimately be crowned 'Rat Supreme'? You decide!

​Hosted by members of The Suggestibles, who challenge the teams made-up of improvisers from School of Improv. Accompanied by an improvising musician and guest improv pundit.

Tonight's Rat Race will be followed by GLITTER CURTAIN CABARET in the bar. That's your chance to sing a song for our entertainment!

We're looking for a range of singers, and classic musical theatre and movie showtunes. Xmas songs are in the mix too! You'll be accompanied by Jenni Winter on keyboards. We will save a handful of slots for people to jump up impromptu on the night, but we'd like most to book your song in advance. For full details and to book your song, go to our event page on Facebook:

Rat Race, starts at 9pm, runs 2 hrs inc. interval

Alphabetti Theatre

Alphabetti Theatre is based in Newcastle Upon Tyne and was created by Ali Pritchard in 2012. We create, produce, and programme new, original work from emerging artists across the performing arts, championing work in Music, Theatre, Comedy and Poetry. We strive to make theatre that is relatable and accessible to all, and are constantly looking for new ways to challenge ourselves, physically, mentally and conceptually – we believe that by challenging ourselves we inevitably challenge the audience, creating engaging and original experiences.
