Theater Anonymous: It's a Wonderful Life is an exciting, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants evening of theater that celebrates Seattle’s amazing theater community.

Actors must take an oath of secrecy and are allowed to tell only one other person on earth that they are participating.

Actors enter the theater in street clothes, sit with the audience until their first line, and deliver it from the audience before joining the rest of the cast onstage.
