Wing-It Productions is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to enlightening, educating and entertaining audiences of all ages by producing theatrical events which explore theater by utilizing its improvisational roots. Our goal is to create improvisational-based theater and to bring the art of improvisation into the mainstream thought of our everyday culture.
We present six shows every weekend at our theater in Seattle. Over the course of any given month, this will include Jet City Improv as well as original full-length unscripted plays, midnight shows, and our improvised re-dubbed movie show, Twisted Flicks.

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
5510 University Way NE in Seattle (5 bocks North of the UW campus) - map
WHERE CAN I PARK MY CAR?
Parking is available on the street, usually within two blocks of the theater.
CAN MY KIDS COME TO YOUR SHOWS?
Jet City Improv (every Fri and Sat at 10:30pm, most Saturdays at 8:00pm) and Twisted Flicks (the last Thurs, Fri and Sat of each month) are always all-ages appropriate. Our Thursday/Friday 8:00pm shows are a case-by-case basis (see the web page for the individual show for more info on age appropriateness). Our midnight shows are always for mature audiences.
DO YOU SELL FOOD/DRINKS AT YOUR SHOWS?
We have a concession stand that sells popcorn, candy, soda, water and beer. We have a bar (open at most shows) that serves cocktails to those of you over 21.
IMPROV? UNSCRIPTED? WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
While our shows, both long-form and short-form, have format and structure, nothing is pre-written and actual show content is created by the actors before your eyes. Everything we do is based on audience suggestion. We pride ourselves on audience-interactive theater.

I HAVE A DISABILITY. CAN YOU ACCOMODATE ME?
Wheelchairs Our theater is on ground-level, and we have wheelchair seating areas.
Hearing Impaired We cannot supply an ASL interpreter. You are welcome to bring one of your own (email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you are bringing an interpreter), however our style of performance is very difficult to do live ASL interpretation to, since we are a fast-paced improv show and do not have a script.
Visually Impaired We do permit seeing-eye dogs.

Wing-It Productions was created in 1996 by Andrew McMasters and Mike Christensen to produce Jet City Improv and other improvisational works. Wing-It has created varying products such as Twisted Flicks, An Improvised It's a Wonderful Life, and The Y2K Bash. In 1999, Wing-It took over producing the Fremont Outdoor Movies to preserve a fun community event and allow for more education of improv to a diverse community.
