Theatresports™ in Schools is an annual competition for improvised theatre held by The Court Theatre. School teams of up to six perform scenes and games based on audience suggestions, scored by a judging panel of The Court Jesters. Teams who progress through the heats are invited to participate in the grand finale at The Court Theatre.
Schools who would like to receive improvisation training from The Court Jesters may arrange for in-school tutoring, please contact the Education Manager for more information and a quote.
