Our New Holiday Shows

New! The Christmas Police
1 man, 1 woman
10 minutes

Bring out your tacky Christmas ornaments and don your worst holiday sweaters...then watch out for the Christmas Police! Officer Jack Frost is on the job protecting the neighborhood from gross violations of good taste and Maude Klawes is a repeat offender. Will Frost be able to pry her precious Christmas cow and her headless Santa out of her arthritic hands?

New! Mrs. Claus
1 woman
5 minutes

It's Christmas time and Santa is delivering toys in his sleigh, bringing good cheer to all. But what about the wife he leaves behind? The hardworking woman who supports him? Who cleans up after those reindeer, anyway? Who keeps those elves in line? Who makes sure Santa doesn't have too much sherry before the Big Night? Mrs. Claus--Mabel, to you--that's who! In this hilarious monologue, Mabel Claus describes the trials and tribulations of being married to the world's most famous man for 541 years. Sure, he only works one night a year, but she has to keep things running the rest of the time! Mrs. Claus is a the 'real' story behind Santa, and a true Christmas gem!
