"This is the most hopeless place in the world!" Hilda intones as she and Satch, her assistant, argue over what time it is. She dreams of faraway places and only finds tedium in running the Holly Railway Station. That is, until Leo Tannenbaum drops in out of nowhere the day before Christmas Eve. Suddenly, an old radio that hasn't worked in years springs to life, the local group of carolers (which usually yowls like a gang of wet cats) begins to sound like the Morman Tabernacle Choir and the whole town gets the Christmas spirit. Coincidence? Or is Leo doing all this? Even Satch changes his tune when it turns out that Leo might be on the run. This nostalgic theatrical greeting card is full of eccentric small town characters, wise-cracking their way to finding the true wonder of Christmas. And on the way, they make us all wish we could take a ride on The Christmas Express.
PLAY ON: February 22-24, March 1-4; Director, Sue Aukerman
Set in the present - day on the stage of a local community theatre, is the hilarious story of a theatre group trying desperately to put one play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty author who keeps revising the script.
Act 1 is a rehearsal of the dreadful show, Act II is the near disastrous dress rehearsal , and the final act is the actual performance, in which anything that can go wrong, does. When the author decides to give a speech on the state of the modern theatre during curtain calls, the audience is treaded a madcap climax to a thoroughly hilarious romp. Even the sound effects reap their share of laughter. The play will be directed by Sue Aukerman.
