On Wednesday, Dec. 21, the Silverbacks Improv Theatre will present their traditional “Holiday Show.” Each December, the Silverbacks interpret their signature improvisations through the lens of a holiday – a brand new, completely made up holiday to be specific– and, with the audience’s help, they will create their very own annual celebration similar to the “Festivus for the Rest of Us” from Seinfeld.
For this show, each of the performers will be wearing a holiday sweater and invite the audience to do the same. Any holiday-themed items are welcome and the audience is invited to wear their finest Christmas, Easter, Mardi Gras, or even Groundhog Day sweaters to add to the fun. Previous invented holidays include “Paper-Clip Appreciation Day” (2012), “Garden Gnome Day” (2013), “Leonardo DaVinci's Mother's Birthday” (2014), and “Picasso-Palooza” (2015).
The Silverbacks 5th Annual Holiday Show begins at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 21, at The Hive at 810 Jefferson St., in Downtown Lafayette. Tickets are $10 for general admission and can be purchased at the door. Those patrons arriving dressed in Holiday Finery may purchase tickets for $8.
