About the Show

We all know the story of Charles Dickens’ classic, “A Christmas Carol”. Or do we…? 

Based on your suggestions, our improvisers will weave Dickens’ tale of Ebeneezer Scrooge in all sorts of hilarious ways. At this Seattle classic, each show is different merging this literary classic with over 30 audience suggestions into this holiday improvised show. Where does Scrooge work? What ails Tiny Tim? Does Scrooge even get reformed? It’s all up to you in this wild, hilarious, holiday ride. A holiday tradition for countless locals since 1985. Each night is a new version of this old favorite, so join us at the Market Theatre in Pike Place Market and have a blast creating your own Christmas classic. Tickets $20 online $25 at the door. Created by Randy Dixon, directed by Tony Beeman.

Please arrive early to make sure that you offer and learn the 30+ show suggestions/offers to guarantee you understand the premise of each night’s unique performance.


 We describe all of our shows as PG13. While Unexpected Productions always strives to present material that is appropriate for teen and adult audiences, due to the unpredictable and audience participatory nature of improvisation, it is impossible to guarantee the content.
