10 Public performance, Big City Christmas, The ArtsCenter, Carrboro (8 pm). Buy tickets!

Transactors Improv celebrates the holidays with Big City Christmas, a two-act show featuring improvised songs. The performance is based on audience suggestions and divided into five slice-of-life episodes with live musical accompaniment by pianist Glenn Mehrbach and drummer Rob Ladd.

“There’s something magical about holiday time in big cities,” says company director Greg Hohn. “There are so many different things and ways to celebrate. Even amidst the rush and crush of people, time seems to slow down for a while and folks are filled with friendliness and festivity. Or sometimes the craziness is merely amplified against the backdrop of colorful lights and carols.

“In this show we’ll take a look inside the lives of five different groups of people as they celebrate in five different situations. We’ll have lots of music, and everything is improvised, including the melodies, lyrics, choreography, and, of course, the story and characters.”

Anoo Tree Brod, Greg Hohn, Bart Hubbard, Juliet Kaplan, Steve Scott, Steven Warnock, and Jane Allen Wilson make up the cast. Jenn Evans masters technical effects from the booth.
