Since 2005, Impro Australia has been running the Theatresports® Schools Challenge (TSC) – the only school's drama competition in NSW!
It brings together representative teams from over 100 independent and government schools across Sydney, Wollongong, the Central Coast, Bowral and Nowra to perform together in the spirit of joyful improvisation.
Teams of 3-5 students from each school create 1, 2 and 3-minute improvised scenes live on stage, judged and scored by our team of improvisation professionals. Theatresports® increases the students’ confidence, listening skills and teamwork, as well as strengthening their problem-solving abilities and creative thinking, all in a hilarious, fun and supportive environment.

Each participating student/team receives:
A free 90 min improvisation workshop run by one of IA’s professional trainers, prior to each of the heats (valued at $300)
Detailed performance feedback from Impro Australia judges after each heat
An annual Theatresports® licence for their school (valued at $500) so they can perform, publicise and charge admission for their own Theatresports® shows at their school throughout the year; raising money for charity or the school or whatever they wish

Each team competes in a local regional heat. The top scoring teams (half) then go through to a regional semi-final. The top 2 teams from each semi-final compete in the Theatresports® Schools Challenge Grand Final
