‘Mischief Movie Night’ to return to the West End this Christmas

Create your very own Christmas movie at the Vaudeville Theatre.

Instead of Magic Goes Wrong reopening at the Vaudeville Theatre, the return of Mischief Movie Night will take its place. The improvisational comedy show will enjoy a two-month run at the Vaudeville, with performances from 9 December to 31 Jan. 2021.

During each performance, cast members ask the audience for a genre, location and title for a brand new movie. Then, as the show develops, the Mischief Theatre company will bring the film to life.

Originally titled Lights! Camera! Improvise!, the production was first devised and presented at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2009. Since then, it's been performed across the UK and internationally, including a West End run at the Arts Theatre in 2017. In 2020, Mischief Movie Night was staged at outdoor venues across the United Kingdom.

Mischief Movie Night will play at the Vaudeville Theatre this Christmas, instead of the previously-billed Magic Goes Wrong. In a tweet from the show, Magic Goes Wrong will now return in the West End from October 2021.

Mischief Movie Night is at the Vaudeville Theatre from 9 December to 31 Jan. 2021.
