Have you been bad or good this year? Your suggestions during OTRimprov’s show, The Naughty List, can help you answer that.

OTRimprov promises The Naughty List will transform Arnold’s Bar & Grill’s patio into a magical world where they will “celebrate, skewer, lament, embellish, and extol everything we love, and love to hate, about the holidays." And because the show is based on audience participation, you’ll never see the same performance twice.

“Whether they are rewriting a beloved carol in front of your eyes, showing how Santa should handle unexpected gift requests, or reimagining your favorite holiday stories in magical ways, The Naughty List will fill your holidays with side-splitting laughs. Bring your cheer or your humbug; either way, you’ll help craft the incomparable experience only OTRimprov can provide,” reads a press release.

“Seeing families and friends come back year after year, to have them talk about their favorite moments and what they love about the experience is incredibly satisfying. And the people who discover us each year who tell us how glad they are they found us and how they can’t wait to come back...it makes for a unique Cincinnati holiday tradition we are grateful to be a part of,” director Paul Wilson says in the release.

The show started its run on Dec. 13, but more performances are being held Wednesday-Thursday, Dec. 14-15 and Tuesday-Thursday, Dec. 20-22 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased here. Tickets do not include food or drinks.

Arnold’s has an a la carte menu of dinner, drinks and dessert you can enjoy before and during the show, but you have to arrive by 7 p.m. to be guaranteed dinner service.

Arnold’s Bar & Grill, 210 E. Eighth St., Downtown.
