"ComedySportz Indianapolis will reinvent the story of Ebenezer Scrooge through comic improvisation in A Christmas Carol: Unscripted. After audiences provide suggestions, the professional improv performers will mix them up with A Christmas Carol, and an old, familiar story will become something new and (hopefully) hilarious. Though the key structure of the story will be maintained, comical changes will naturally occur: Instead of a moneylender, Ebenezer Scrooge might be a day-trader or a florist; Marley’s ghost might be burdened with a chain made from old coffeemakers or poodles; Tiny Tim might be afflicted by dandruff or an irrational fear of towels. The possibilities are limited only by the imagination of the audience.
Performances are Fridays, Nov. 23-Dec. 28, 10 p.m. Tickets are $12 and guests must be over 17. Reservations are suggested: call 317-951-8499 or go to www.indycomedysportz.com. The ComedySportz Theatre is located at 721 Massachusetts Ave.
