A Christmas Chaos at Elden Street Players
“A satire of theatrical backstage mayhem and Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol.”
Written by Michael Wehrli.
What’s the Elden Street Players Theater for Young Audiences to do when the Royal Shakespeare Company doesn’t show up to perform their stirring rendition of A Christmas Carol? Well, they pull up their boot straps and attempt to put on a show for you folks with their fearless band of hapless actors and technicians as they pull together their own production in less than seven hours!
Have you ever heard rumors of backstage mayhem? Well, you’ll have yourself a delightful, comedy-filled taste! Chaos comes crashing down as two kids fight over who will play Tiny Tim, a confused actor thinks he in another show, and another actor attempts to play both Bob and Mrs. Cratchit at the same time. With an out-of-control director, this extremely fast-paced, physical comedy proves that sometimes everything that CAN go wrong WILL go wrong!
