Baltimore Improv Group (BIG) has teamed with The Arlington Drafthouse and Drafthouse Comedy in DC for a unique, improvised take on a holiday tradition, A Christmas Carol.
For seven nights in December the audience can “choose their own Scrooge” as four improvisers from BIG perform an almost entirely improvised take on Dickens’ tale. While major plot points of the original remain the same, most of this retelling will be made up on the spot based on audience suggestions. Throughout the show audience interactions will help shape the direction and details of the story– with some audience members getting the chance to play a few key roles.
Each night’s audience will get a daring and hilarious reimagining of A Christmas Carol unlike any they’ve seen before.
Thirteen performances are scheduled at two locations in Washington, DC and Arlington, VA. Tickets are $20 each and can be bought here for the DC show or here for an Arlington performance.
