The play is a Jones-Hope-Wooten comedy. These are the same authors as The Dixie Swim Club and Dearly Beloved, both of which have previously been seen on the TCT stage and were audience favorites.
It's four days before Christmas in the tiny town of Tinsel, Texas, and a colorful parade of eccentric guests arrive at the Snowflake Inn and deck the halls with holiday hilarity!
Trina (Suzanne Wohleb), the harried yet upbeat inkeeper of this bed and breakfast, has more than she can handle coping with these nuttier-than-a-fruitcake lodgers.
Hoyt (Chris Wohleb) and his sister, Donna Jo (Debbie Cable Brown), make the mistake of trying to end a 30-year feud between their curmudgeonly aunts, Ennis (Regina Corley) and Della (Lori Honeycutt), with sidesplitting results.
Ainsley (Michael J. Fox) and Lenora (Regina Corley), self-involved actors from a lower-than-low-budget touring production of A Christmas Carol, descend on the Inn to fulfill a promise, leaving comedic chaos in their wake. Paulette (MJ Clark) is their stage manager.
Add to this Yuletide mayhem an ill-advised romantic rendezvous between Mrs. Claus (Jill B. Main) and one of Santa's elves (Darren Walker), a demanding guest (Terry McNiel) who refuses to leave, not to mention a tipsy housekeeper (Janice Wilson), and it's clear it will take more than a kiss under the mistletoe to keep Trina's spirits merry and bright.
But a spur of the moment Christmas Eve wedding that brings together the Futrelle sisters -- Honey Raye (Jill B. Main), Twink (Lori Honeycutt), Frankie (Jennifer Murphy) and Rhonda Lynn (Debbie Cable Brown) -- and their best friend, Raynerd (Darren Walker), takes a surprising and delightful turn that leads to a laugh-'til-your-sides-ache climax, changing all their lives forever.
You'll swear this family-friendly Christmas comedy is more fun than a joy ride in a one horse open sleigh!
