Dickens’ A Christmas Carol meets Monty Python. Oh, My! In this twisted version, a stressed-out, pre-feminist Mrs. Cratchit desperately wants to leave repressive Victorian London, her husband and their 20 children. Getting drunk and jumping off London Bridge seems like a perfectly reasonable option. However, her plans are thwarted when a series of magic malfunctions by the Ghost of Christmas Past, Present and Future transports Mrs. Cratchit and Ebenezer Scrooge to the wrong time and place with hilarious, unintended consequences. Mashing up the original story with forays into Oliver!, Touched by an Angel, Gift of the Magi and It’s a Wonderful Life, this playful, cracked look at A Christmas Carol, will have your head spinning without drinking a drop of Fezziwig’s legendary Christmas punch.

It’s wacky. It’s fun. And there will be SINGING!
