Carol's Christmas Catastrophe
The Pinecone Players' annual Christmas pageant, directed by former beauty queen Carol Claus, is threatened when the entire cast, fed up with Carol's "hack directing," quits an hour before show time. Carol realizes she'll have to do the whole show herself. Too bad she only knows her own number. In a frantic act of desperation, Carol decides to audition whomever she can find to replace her cast and get the show up in time. In 60 chaotic minutes, meet the strangely wonderful people who show up at the brink of impending disaster to save Carol from ruin. Add to the mix a little Christmas music, a biker Grandma, a disgruntled Fire Marshal, and a mysterious gentleman who has Carol reflect on her (not so merry) future, and you've got a comedy of errors that is nuttier than a fruitcake!
By Tony Jerris & Bruce W. Durbin, Original music & arrangements by Corinne Aquilina
