A hilarious backstage comedy, this play pokes fun at the classic novel and everything that can go wrong with a theatrical production. The Royal Shakespeare Company hasn’t arrived as promised to perform their stirring rendition of “A Christmas Carol,” so Prince William Little Theatre’s intrepid band of hapless actors and technicians must put together their own production in only seven hours!
What a pity they are not quite up to the task, even though they give it their all. This entertaining play focuses on the poor but dedicated thespians doing their best while chaos ensues around them. From kids fighting over who gets to play Tiny Tim, a confused actor who thinks she’s in another show, and a haughty lead actor to an actor playing both Bob and Mrs. Cratchit and an out of control director, the thrown-together props and costumes, ridiculous scenery, and tons of flubs and confusion make for an uproarious performance that will have audiences in stitches.
