Come On Girls! is a brand new live entertainment concept hitting Liverpool this week, combining “the magic of television but with the intimacy and uniqueness of a night at the theatre”. Inspired by a similar format that began in Canada, it is the city’s first improvised infotainment chat show! *APPLAUSE*
Taking the best bits from daytime television and late night comedy with the added adrenaline only found in live theatre, Come On Girls! creates an entirely original evening’s worth of entertainment with plenty to see and do before, during and after the show. Expect sketches, music, discussion, interviews, experts, demonstrations, vintage sales, cocktails, snacks, make-overs, silliness, horoscopes, problems, confessions, stupendous prizes, crafts, therapy and games.
The evening is hosted by Helen Foster (Macbeth, Trickster Theatre), Lauren Silver (Spike Theatre’s The Games) and Rosie Wilkinson (artistic director of Impropriety) who between them have experience in improv, clowning, dance, music and puppetry. All three are core members of Impropriety, Liverpool’s premier improvisation company, and have been involved in improv marathons in Liverpool, London, Bristol, Cork and Canada. Come On Girls! – described as “like Loose Women – but better” – came about from a desire to make intelligent theatre and discussion created with women in mind – although men are also very welcome.
Come On Girls! takes place this Thursday (May 12), at Studio Liverpool, on the 5th floor of Elevator Studios on Upper Parliament Street (opposite Cains). Doors at 7:30pm for an 8pm start. Tickets are £8 (£5 concs), available on the door (cash only) To reserve tickets email email@example.com.
