This year’s play, “Greeting From Christmas Town” or “The Search for the Ultimate Christmas Gift,” is written and directed by Jonathan Archie. Two years ago, Christmas was almost destroyed by a villain named Scotty McBagpipes, but the efforts of Rudolf, Santa Claus, and George “The Italian” Snowman managed to save the day.
This year, McBagpipes is back with a whole new bag of tricks to ruin Christmas, but there is a new villain named Benedict O’Greasy who walks in and finds a way to own Christmas Town. McBagpipes along with Rudolf, The Butcher, the Baker, and the Candlestick Maker tried to find the Ultimate Christmas Gift. Whoever holds this gift will be very lucky. Will Santa save Christmas or will McBagpipes take over? See the Mrs. Claus, Private EYE Gum Shoe, Aunt Helga, George the Snowman, Rudolf, Manny Buckman, and the one and only Santa Claus in action. Don’t forget to boo the villain and cheer the heroes and heroines!
