About the Play: Setting is a theatre, and the time is now. Three actors set out to perform Dickens' holiday classic for the umpteenth time but decide to create a "one-with-everything" Christmas story. They dish up a hilarious melee of Christmas stories, traditions, carols, and icons from ancient times to contemporary pop culture. It's a delicious, madcap romp through the holiday season! Improv and audience interaction is part of the fun. Characters: All roles for ages 18 or above. Comedy and improve skills a plus.
Actor 1 (Actor’s real name) - Really, really wants to go ahead with Christmas Carol as planned and rehearsed, no matter what!
Actor 2 (Actor’s real name) – Really, really does not want to go ahead with Christmas Carol and would like to perform literally anything else.
Actor 3 (Actor’s real name) – Really, really knowledgeable about other Christmas traditions, stories, and myths very excited to share everything they know.
