The Second City’s A Christmas Carol: Twist Your Dickens

Twist 750X414

December 5 — 31
On the U.S. Bank Main Stage

Previews are Dec. 5 - 7 | Opening night Dec. 8
By Peter Gwinn & Bobby Mort
Directed by Rob West

A complete send-up of the holiday classic, this adult comedy is adorned with the improvisational genius of the legendary comedy troupe The Second City, and includes zany holiday sketches, an ever-changing list of drop-in local celebrities and uproarious improv based on audience participation — it’s never the same show twice! It has become a Portland holiday favorite, and will return in 2017 after runs at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. and Goodman Theatre in Chicago this past season.

Run Time:
Approximately 1 hour and 50 minutes, including one intermission.

Note:
Twist Your Dickens is recommended for ages 14+. Contains mature content, explicit language, theatrical haze, strobe lighting, the use of one tobacco-free vapor e-cigarette and a Dalek on a conquest for universal extermination. Children under 6 are not permitted at any production at The Armory.

Evenings: Tuesday - Sunday at 7:30 p.m.*
Matinees: Saturday and Sundays at 2 p.m.,
