Rented Christmas

John Dale, a middle-aged bachelor and prominent businessman, has a challenging job for Anne Weston, proprietor of the local rent shop. He wants to rent a Christmas, not just with a tree and Christmas carols, but complete with a wife, a family, and all of the happiness for which he has been secretly longing. Anne believes she has creatively solved the problem of a Christmas family by calling the actors guild, but when the young actors come down with the measles, her last hope is to turn to the local orphanage. Still, the guild can’t locate a mother for the part, so Anne steps in at the last minute to play the role herself. A “rented” Christmas soon turns into a new life for all concerned, which makes this a very warm and special holiday treat. Beautiful medleys of popular Christmas carols along with delightful original music are the perfect accompaniment to convey the sentiment of the season.

                        The Canterbury Tales Or… Geoffrey Chaucer’s Flying Circus

                        See The Canterbury Tales told with a Monty Python flair! Many believe that Chaucer’s literary masterpiece revolutionized English literature. You’ll meet many of the pilgrims who tell his tales, including the Wife of Bath who has cleaned up her act for this adaptation and is now a nagging woman who sells self-help DVDs. The Miller makes an appearance too, though nobody wants to hear anything he has to say! Game show host Alex of Trebek and talk show host King Larry contribute a huge dose of additional irreverent fun, as does Geoffrey Chaucer himself.

                                              After an entire class fails the exam on Beowulf, their stern teacher issues a challenge—to tell her the story complete with characters, action, themes and history and you might just pass! Monty Python meets classic literature as the students explore Beowulf with biting sarcasm and amusing stage action.
