taproot theatre features Late-night improv on the mainstage

It’s a Wonderful Improvised Life comes to the stage this December

SEATTLE – November 3, 2008 – Late-Night Improv returns to the Taproot Theatre Mainstage this December—for 3 performances only! Taproot Theatre’s improvisers will entertain audiences with a fun retelling of a Christmas classic. It’s a Wonderful Improvised Life, created by Danny Walter, takes place at Taproot Theatre on December 5, 12 and 19, after the evening performance of the Mainstage production—The Christmas Foundling by Norman Allen and inspired by the stories of Bret Hart—ends.

It’s a Wonderful Improvised Life combines the wacky and wonderful imaginations of the Taproot improvisers with the audience’s suggestions, telling this favorite Christmas story in a whole new way. Using It’s a Wonderful Life as a guide, the actors make every performance unique by soliciting key story elements from the audience’s suggestions. What will happen to Mr. Potter? How about George Bailey? Will Bailey Brothers’ Saving and Loan finally get the respect it deserves? The audience decides! Zu-zu’s petals, it’s going to be a bell-ringing good time!
