Get ready to enjoy a hilarious show with a Christmas theme and something fun for the whole family. Dad and daughter Beth are getting ready to feed the extended family on Christmas Eve. Mom is stuck at the airport trying to get home from Vermont. Aunt Rose and Uncle Leo are bickering. Aunt Bunny is into everything and Uncle Bud is wishing he was somewhere else, while their daughter, Tracy, is just bored with the whole thing. Sound pretty typical so far? So there’s a busybody neighbor, cute blue-hair boyfriend, his little sister, the friendly neighborhood cop and… DING-DONG! …. WHO’S THAT AT THE DOOR? Well, that’s when the whole show gets really crazy, so you’ll have to come see for yourself.
