Our holiday show will be two comical one-act plays. “Tiny Tim’s Christmas Carol” by Ken Ludwig and Jack Ludwig, and “’Twas The Night Before Christmas” by Ken Ludwig are sure to make everyone laugh—including old man Scrooge.
In “Tiny Tim’s Christmas Carol,” Bob Cratchitt’s son hatches a plan with the help of some kindly sellers at the market and his friend Charlotte. Together they stage a spectacle filled with enough ghosts and Christmas cheer to convince Scrooge to give Bob Cratchitt the day off.
It all seems to be going according to plan until a little bit of real Christmas magic catches everyone by surprise.
“’Twas The Night Before Christmas” is all about the mice—who are actually stirring despite the poem’s lines.
The play begins with Uncle Brierly and Emily attempting to read the traditional version only to be interrupted by Amos the mouse. It soon becomes clear that Santa left both Emily and Amos off the ‘Naughty’ and ‘Nice’ lists last year and skipped their house all together. Calliope, an elf, comes to investigate and whisks Emily and a reluctant Amos off to the North Pole to save Christmas. The ensuing adventure is a hilarious and chaotic mix.
There is no shortage of enthusiasm, exhilaration, and elation during this holiday adventure.
