 Corporate Entertainment & Training

Since 1990 we have been Wellington's premier permanent corporate theatre company. 

 

We excite, we invigorate and we entertain.

 

We have worked in partnership with most of New Zealand's major employers - promoting them to clients, educating staff, facilitating them to creatively embrace industry issues and celebrating successes with them.

 

In over 25 years there isn’t much that The Improvisors haven’t done. Our performers come from a wide variety of backgrounds and that allows us to tackle anything. We’ve not only customised entertainment but created training videos, written and directed ads, created theatre pieces, and provided the talent to make it all shine.

Deana Elvins
Tim Gordon

Customer Care Manager

Deana has been in the office as our Customer Care Manager since 2013 and has worked with The Improvisors as a performer since 2001. 

 

Originally from Dunedin, Deana moved to Wellington in 1998 to train as an actor at Toi Whakaari:The New Zealand Drama School.  Since graduating she has worked in Wellington most notably as a voice over artist but also doing the odd small tv or film role. Whilst at home with her two small boys she also studied for a Bachelor of Business with a Human Resources major.

 

Deana has a passion for discovering what makes your organisation unique, what makes your people laugh and working to create the perfect experience for your event. As a performer she particularly enjoys training, presentation and role play.

 

For the past 25 years, Tim has worked extensively in the government and corporate sectors, as an MC and facilitator of conferences and workshops.  He is one of the original founders and artistic directors of The Improvisors,

 

Tim is also an experienced trainer in communication and presentation skills.

 

As a screen actor, Tim’s highlights include the grieving father, For Good; the crooked Councillor in Larry Parr’s Fracture, the misogynistic bloke in Adam Steven’s Beautiful - for which he won Best Actor at the Drifting Cloud International Short Film Festival – the Crown Prosecutor in the award winning Until Proven Innocent, Pop Preston in Home by Christmas, and in the last year Tim played Field Marshall Haig in War News and the Graham Henry in the Tele-feature The Kick.

 

Tim has appeared on the stage many times with a playwright’s script in his head (Soulmates, Gunsmoke, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Wait Until Dark, Four Flat Whites in Italy and A Shortcut to Happiness, Up for Grabs.)  For his roles in the 2010 International Festival of the Arts in the French-New Zealand co-production of The Letter Writer he was nominated for the Chapman Tripp Theatre Awards Supporting Actor.
