Holiday Show: You Better Watch Out!
A Show For The Whole Family

Directed by: Heidi Ward
Produced by: Joel Colbourn and Lynn Wolsey

"...a wonderful story about discovering the spirit of the holiday season"

"...the essence of the play is about bringing us together as a people through optimism, courtesy and hospitality."

The story is set on Christmas Eve at the Willow Inn. The hosts Jenny and Tom are having Art, Jenny's father who is still mourning the passing of his wife, see their bed and breakfast for the very first time. Three more travelers are forced to lodge at the inn as a snowstorm is raging outside. Those waiting it out are Rudy and Marsha, who run a costume business together, and a mysterious but cheerful man who claims to be in the delivery business, named Mr. Smith. Only the Inn's handyperson, Andy, sees who Mr. Smith really is, the spirit of Christmas. Andy must help Art, who has been in a dark place for a very long time, see the joy of Christmas and discover who Mr. Smith really is!

"This play is perfect for the holidays because it reminds us what the holidays should be about: love, happiness and hope."
