Every Christmas Story Ever ToldABOUT THE SHOW:
Instead of performing Charles Dickens’ beloved holiday classic for the umpteenth time, three actors decide to perform every Christmas story ever told — plus Christmas traditions from around the world, seasonal icons from ancient times to topical pop-culture, and every carol ever sung. A madcap romp through the holiday season!

Contains some mild adult content and language.

Actor #1 – Is the traditionalist of the three, wishing only to do “A Christmas Carol”. He/she comes around, though, to join in the fun. Other roles include the Grinch, Hermy (from Rudolph), a Parade Host, the Crocodile Hunter, Scrooge and George Bailey.

Actor #2 – Is the wise guy of the three, to some extent, goading the others into doing other Christmas shows. Other roles he plays are the Head Elf and Yukon Cornelius from “Rudolph…”, a Dating Game style game show host, a (female) Parade Host, Bob Cratchit, and the Ghost of Christmas Past.

Actor #3 – Is a little of both, a traditionalist and a trouble-maker, kind of a go-between Actor 1 & Actor 2. Among the many roles he/she plays are Rudolph, Frosty, Clarence, Mary Bailey, Uncle Billy, and Mr. Potter.
