Just Improvise co-director Neil Barnard and co-director Esther Longhurst will MC the 2013 Theatresports grand final at the Mt Lawley Bowling Club.

The family-friendly show will see improvisation rookies and veterans battle it out for the WA Theatresports Championship Cup by acting out scenes and scenarios on the spot, inspired by audience suggestions.

Barnard is sharing the MC duties with Just Improvise co-director Esther Longhurst.

‘We’ll kind of be like those energetic party hosts that are always running around asking ‘are you having a good time’,’ Barnard said.

‘When it comes to Esther and myself, I think our smiles can be quite infectious so I’m hoping to see a room full of smiling faces by the end of the night.’

Just Improvise creative director Glenn Hall said the 2013 Theatresports season had featured players with more than 20 years experience as well as those who had never participated before.

The show is also supporting Parkerville Children and Youth Care and calls on people to make Christmas gift donations.
