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. Twist Your Dickens includes zany holiday sketches and uproarious improv — it’s never the same show twice! It has become a Portland holiday favorite.

It is back with Darius Pierce joining the cast for the 2017 run through Dec. 31.
