It's almost Christmas - the season to be jolly - but things are going downhill fast at the Kendalls'! Carl's been fired, the budget won't stretch far enough to cover gifts for everyone and Uncle Roscoe's due to arrive any day for a visit. As a matter of fact, a reasonable facsimile of Uncle has arrived, a bit prematurely, and brought his friend Kenny! Oh-oh!
A thoroughly contemporary holiday celebration, warmly, wryly humorous and brimming with the love of living! The best for any season!
The play is written by Pat Cook and directed by Chérie Zinck.

Meet Hyronymous, a lonely and rather over-large frog, who lives in a swamp and eats bugs (which taste disgusting). Poor thing had no idea he was a man, let alone a prince, until a Good Witch came along and told him. Now he needs to learn how to act like a person and find a princess to kiss. Unfortunately, the only princess around is...well...a brat, who is already interested in a rather dim self-important knight (who's only successes are likely due to his much more intelligent page). Can the princess's handmaiden and the somewhat confused Queen help Hyronymous become the prince he is supposed to be?
This show has matinee performances Feb 13, 14, 20, 21, 27, 28 in 2016.
