Affordable holiday fun: A(n Improvised) Christmas Carol at Unexpected Productions!

Looking for an awesome holiday event that doesn’t break the bank and is family-friendly? Unexpected Productions (the theatre in Pike Place Market next to the gum wall!) presents “A(n Improvised) Christmas Carol” – the improv twist on the popular classic – now through 12/23! My hubby Brandon and I are taking my family –  my parents, brother, sister-in-law, and two nieces (age 14 and 11) to see this awesome production and share many laughs together. I have a feeling this may become a new holiday tradition for us! Brandon and I saw this production a few years ago and loved it. Every show is different, as they ridiculously twist the tale in directions from audience suggestions. This production offers two casts and we will see the show when one of our favorite improv actors, Paul Levy, is performing as Scrooge.

Tickets are selling out fast for the shows! December 16 is already sold out and most of the performances (Dec 9-10, 14-15, 17-23) are more than half-sold out already.

Tickets here.

Tickets are super affordable compared to other holiday productions in town, guests ages 21+ can enjoy a nicely-priced drink from the bar. Oh, did I mention they have popcorn and other snacks at concessions? Leave room for popcorn!

“Based on audience suggestions, the improvisers of Unexpected Productions bend and twist Charles Dickens’ tale of Ebenezer Scrooge in all sorts of hilarious directions — and each show is different. Maybe Scrooge owns a pet store, maybe the Ghost of Christmas Past is a film noir detective, maybe Tiny Tim isn’t so tiny and maybe the ghosts show Scrooge the error of his ways, but maybe not!

Traditionally, as with other fully improved shows, every show is the different every night, based completely on audience suggestions. Audiences are encouraged to let their imagination run wild. [The cast has] to incorporate the more than 30-plus audience suggestions to recreate the plot and nuance the story.” – Unexpected Productions
