Another Night Before Christmas
Karol, a disillusioned social worker, is trudging home one cold December night when she encounters an old man sitting on a park bench. Mistaking him for homeless, Karol offers the stranger some food — a seemingly innocent gesture, until he turns up in her apartment claiming to be Santa Claus. Thanks to a malfunctioning security system, Karol finds herself trapped with “Mr. Claus” and forced to confront her feelings about Christmas once and for all in this touching musical battle between cynicism and belief.

"It's a tale with a twist for all ages...insightful, while delightfully entertaining. The theatre was awash with applause and laughter."

"Not the usual holiday entertainment, it's a tall cool club soda after a quart of egg nog."
Derek Donovan, Kansas City Star
"...roaringly funny, yet chock-full of thoughtful commentary on the season, people and what Christmas really means."

Female - 30s-40s
She's attractive, verbally fast but cynical in an endearing way. She's very tired of the world. A social worker, she wants to help people but increasingly, she's losing faith in them. She's logical to a fault. And beyond.
Male - 50s-60s
Also very fast, mischievous, somewhat hip; loves nonsense. Tonight, he's on a mission. At first he seems a disoriented homeless person but later is quite sharp and to the point. Even in this, he is unfailingly kind and almost childlike. A man-child.
