SYNOPSIS

There’s more to Christmas than A CHRISTMAS CAROL — and these wacky performers are about to prove it! As their regularly scheduled Dickensian performance spirals out of control, they’ll mix in worldwide traditions, modern pop icons, Gustav the Green-Nosed Reingoat, and a whole heap of Christmas carols for one wildly funny holiday revue.
