“Don’t get your tinsel in a twist. . .”

Spice up your holidays with a fast and furious mashup of yuletide pandemonium. Parody and hysteria take the off-off-off broadway stage as a truncated version of A Christmas Carol is condensed and then condensed again. Mayhem ensues when Ebenezer and the Cast go out of control and "Scrooge" the characters and plots from other iconic stories and films to create a completely new Christmas experience. Interspersed with holiday songs and cheer, Christmas Chaos is sure to delight adults and children alike!
