Are you a fan of fairytales? Is even Shrek not original enough for you anymore? Then this is the show for you!

Presented by Auckland improvisation troupe “Improverished”, the cast takes ideas from the audience to create and perform a brand-new fairytale every night. Classic tropes are revisited, new twists are discovered and laughter is had by all.

The prince and the five dwarves? The big bad wolf and the beanstalk? Twelve dancing frogs? Discover where the tale takes you.

Random Fairytale Generator first debuted at Auckland Improv Marathon, following on from Improverished’s sold-out Dungeons & Dragons series at Auckland Fringe 2020. It’s a show not to be missed.

Appropriate for all ages.
