A Christmas Twist

Laugh through the holidays with the irreverent
comedy A Christmas Twist

Looking for a little cheekiness in your holiday theater-going? Enjoy seven actors bringing Twist web art18 characters to life in A Christmas Twist, an irreverent mash-up of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol and Oliver Twist at Burien Actors Theatre.

The show runs from Nov. 27 through Dec. 20, and includes incidental music played live plus free on-site parking and specialty drinks themed to the show. Don’t miss the opening night party!


A Christmas Twist tosses Dickens’ A Christmas Carol and Oliver Twist into a high-spirited blender with plenty of pop culture and an absurd cast of characters that includes Little Orphan Annie. The result is a humorous parody of Christmas stories about the poor versus the rich that spreads the spirit of the season. Written by Doug Armstrong, Keith Cooper & Maureen Morley of the Illegitimate Players, A Christmas Twist combines the energy and spontaneous humor of improv with clever satire, bringing to mind a Mel Brooks creation.

The show is suitable for all ages.


Ken Holmes is directing, with incidental music composed and played live by Allan Loucks. Also featured are the diverse acting talents of Mark Gladding (Tiny Twist), Adam Hegg (Bob Cratchit, Marley, Young Scrooge), John Lynch (Fagin, Fuzziwig, Christmas Future), Melissa Mcalerney (Emily, Caroler, Christmas Past), Madeline Nutting (Scrooge), Anna Richardson (Annie, Caroler, Belle, Christmas Present, Libby) and Tim Takechi (Bumble, Gravedigger).
