Unexpected Productions’ Birthday
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 23 of June, repeating indefinitely
Unexpected Productions is the heart of improv in the Puget Sound. Unexpected Productions (UP) created the improv scene in Seattle. Since 1983, Unexpected Productions has focused on the art of storytelling in its work, taking suggestions from the audience, weaving them into stories. UP created what is now known worldwide as “the Seattle style” of improvisation, which combines short-form games based on the work of Keith Johnson, the long-form spontaneous storytelling based on the work of Del Close & the improv philosophy of Viola Spolin, which see the audience as a fellow player. UP has established a global reputation as leaders in improv & innovation. We change lives through improv. We look forward to returning to our home at the Market Theater in Pike Place Market to continue to grow, evolve, and change lives with laughter.
