About the show

It's The Upfront Theatre's 20th anniversary and we are ready to improvise... for 24 hours straight!

Join us as we attempt to stage a 24 hour episodic, improvised soap opera. You read that right. We've lost our marbles, and improvisers have signed on to endure this feat of extreme improv comedy. Oh! The drama! Witness the sleep deprived, the delirious, and the delusional cook up 20 of the most dramatic comedy shows you will ever see, where no personality is too big and no storyline too outlandish. 

Ok, but seriously, how is this going to work? Over the course of 24 hours, there will be a rotating cast of Upfront alumni and current cast members, including the brave few that have signed on to be apart of Every. Single. Show. We will perform an episodic improvised soap opera for 24 hours straight. Shows, or "episodes," will begin every hour on the hour (with a few breaks for meals), starting August 9th at 10pm. You can watch the madness unfold in a few different ways:

  • Option #1: We are selling ALL ACCESS PASSES which will get you into every single show, including the final show on August 10th at 8pm. You can come and go as you please, though there are prizes for those who stay the whole time.  Find out about all the perks of an All-Access-Pass here
  • Option #2: You can attend any individual show for only $5 (excluding the final show). All show tickets (except the final show) will only be available for purchase at the box office, and are first-come-first-served. Each show starts every hour on the hour, and each will be about 45 minutes.
  • Option #3: You can skip the whole sha-bang and drop in for the FINAL episode on August 10th at 8pm. This will be the ending of a 24 hour run of the improvised soap opera. You might not know the full story, but we guaranteed you'll be entertained by peek delirium! Get your finale tickets here.

This special event will also include several giveaways to local Bellingham businesses throughout the run of shows. If you are in the audience, you might just win something (aside from a hilarious good time)!

We hope you can join us in celebrating The Upfront Theatre bringing the silly, wild, experimental, and funny to Bellingham for the past 20 years. The melodrama awaits. Before we sleep, we improvise!

A very special thank you to our sponsors, who are helping to make this feat possible- Fiamma Pizza, The Bagelry, & Whatcom Museum, Make.Shift Art Space, & Haggen. More sponsors TBD.
