Every Christmas Story Ever Told
December 8 – December 30, 2011
By Michael Carlton, James FitzGerald & John K. Alvarez
Three actors, in what starts out as a pared-down version of the Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol, stage a mutiny and, in an effort to breathe new life into an old tradition, attempt to tell “Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and then some!).” Along the way, we are provided with factoids about Christmas traditions from around the world, watch a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade go horribly wrong, and hear every Christmas Carol ever written in 90 seconds. Full of seasonal icons from ancient times to topical pop culture. From Tiny Tim to Rudolph the Red-Nosed reindeer, from Frosty to the Grinch, nothing is spared in this rollicking tour de farce! The story of the stingy and sour Ebenezer Scrooge is there too, but it seems the actors have overlooked “It’s a Wonderful Life,” so Marley morphs into Clarence, Angel Third Class, and Scrooge morphs into Jimmy Stewart combining two of the greatest Christmas stories ever told.
Many thanks to our Show Sponspor, Quality Imports. When it’s time to buy a new car, go see the fine selections of Toyota, Mercedes Benz, BMW, Scion, and Mazda at Quality Imports in Ft Walton Beach, FL.

“Warning: If you see Every Christmas Story Ever Told, you’ll never be able to watch Dickens’ A Christmas Carol without laughing out loud.”
– David Jacobson, Life Newspapers (Sacramento)
” A hilarious send-up of, well, every Christmas story ever told … This is a highly recommended alternative to cut-and-dry Christmas offerings.”
