Making up this wild cast are Doug Doughty, Joanne Englehardt, Roselind Farotte, Jason Harris, Joey King. Dave Leon, Dana Morgan, Bruce Pember, Rachel Perry, Michael Perry, John Verela and Christine Wanish
The play is the story of a second rated soapbox playhouse somewhere in the Midwest trying to get a third rate hammy bunch of actors getting a production of A Christmas Carol off the ground ready for an opening in a few days.
