Tiny Tim morphs into Tiny Twist (who also happens to be the tallest cast member), while Little Orphan Annie makes an out-of-turn appearance. These characters and all the rest will be dressed in black -- paying tribute to the improv form -- but decorated with Christmas-like accouterments. Heyn says that while some jokes in A Christmas Twist may be more adult-leaning, the show is very much all-ages-friendly.
A Christmas Twist runs today through December 17 at the John Hand Theater, 7653 East First Place, and tickets are $15 to $20. Opening night offers discounted tickets to anyone in an ugly Christmas sweater, and a karaoke party will follow the performance.
