BIG players will create a new two-act play each night of Unscripted. Using audience suggestions and props, our performers generate characters, scenes, and storylines to form a unique theatrical experience. A director, a sound and lighting crew, and visible stage hands also contribute to the performance, building an unrepeatable play every night of Unscripted’s run.
Some of the plays are funny. Some are dark. All of them are a one-night-only engagement.
Just to prove how spontaneous Unscripted is, we encourage audience members to bring unusual objects for use as props.
We don’t know exactly what’s going to happen, and neither do you. That’s the fun part.
Performances are at 8pm every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from April 14th through April 30th, with a special Sunday matinee at 3pm on April 24th. Tickets are $20 for Fri/Sat/Sun shows, $15 for Thursday shows. Parking is available on Howard, Huntingdon, 26th, and other nearby streets around the theater.
