No Script. No Score. No Kids! Newcastle’s legendary improv comedy troupe is back to put the festive fun and laughter into Christmas with their hilarious epic misadventure into the unknown. Creating havoc on Northern Stage’s Sorcerer’s Apprentice set for two crazy nights!

The place is Newcastle. The year is 2021. The people have had it tough these last couple of years. What they really need now is to laugh, like they've never laughed before, and a sprinkle of mischievous Christmas magic. Oh yes, they do!

Enter the Suggestibles. They've been making Northeast folk happy every Christmas at Northern Stage for 14 years. But last year, a dark viral storm spread over the world. We all had to stay inside, and no one could go out to play. Boo!

Do not fear! This Christmas, they return. Inspired by you, the audience, the Suggestibles will make up your own, uniquely special, magical, musical tale of goodies versus baddies. On the spot! Spinning all the kooky characters, delectably daft songs, and titanic twists and turns into a furiously funny, festive sack of fun like no other.

Christmas is saved. The Impro Pantso is back. Phew!
