It's the holidays! Time for the classics Rudolph, Frosty, Ebenezer Scrooge, the Nutcracker and many more! But maybe not the way we're accustomed to hearing them. In what can best be called a holiday mash-up, actors take beloved stories and traditions from around the world and turn them upside-down and sideways!
"The play accomplishes the small miracle of making all Christmas myths seem both utterly ridiculous and absolutely essential. Yes, Virginia, you can have your fruitcake and eat it, too." - Orlando Weekly
