CSz INDIANAPOLIS CELEBRATES 16 YEARS OF IMPROVISING THE DICKENS OUT OF CHRISTMAS CAROL: UNSCRIPTED
Christmas Carol: Unscripted returns to the CSz Indianapolis Theatre for Friday late nights after Thanksgiving. Skilled Improvisers from the CSz Indianapolis roster take Charles Dickens’s classic tale of redemption and turn it on its ear. Edward Trout, Part-Owner and Director of Education for CSz Indianapolis, is looking forward to bringing the improvised version of the holiday classic back to Indianapolis for the sixteenth year of its performance in the Circle City. Performers and staff at CSz Indianapolis present Christmas Carol: Unscripted as either something “naughty” at 10pm or something “nice” for two matinee performances in December.
Friday nights after Thanksgiving at 10pm, (Nov. 29 and Dec. 6, 13, 20, and 27) and one added Saturday (Dec. 21), CSz Indianapolis Theatre – Home of ComedySportz will be filled with Christmas cheer. Performers bring to life the story of Ebenezer Scrooge and his visit with three spirits. Performers stick to the basic structure of the classic story and use a plethora of audience suggestions to shape the story throughout the evening. The 10pm performances go where audience allow it, so an age restriction is in place, making these performances for audiences age 17 and up. Tickets for late night performances are $14.
An all-ages appropriate Christmas Carol: Unscripted is scheduled to take place on Saturday Dec. 14 and 21 at 4:30pm at the CSz Indianapolis Theatre. Performers offer the same story with the same opportunities for improvisation and audience participation. Earlier performances are directed for families with children of all ages. Tickets for the matinee performances are $12.
The 2019 holiday season marks the sixteenth year for Christmas Carol: Unscripted. “Part of the success of the show is the fact that the traditional story is still intact” says Edward Trout, developer of the piece. “Add in the creativity of the audience and the performers, and the result is something unique and magical each performance.”
