In 90 minutes - 3 remaining actors will present Charles Dickens' Christmas Carol. What happened to the rest of the cast? Oh, they got food poisoning. This quick change, over the top, anything can happen (and go wrong) is similar to shows like Greater Tuna, Complete Wrks of Wllm Skspr, Noises Off, The Play That Went Wrong. Since the three actors are doing ALL the roles, some costumes won't fit - some roles won't fit the actors - some costumes won't either - missed entrances and exits - BUT by the end, the Christmas Carol will be told and all will be well with the world. Come, and we'll spread some holiday cheer your way! Oh, and did we say they sing and act and dance? YES! It's a musical to boot. Free parking. Bar service available. Perfect for groups looking for something unusual to do during the holidays.
