“Have a Very Merryville Christmas…or…Chris and Jingle to the Rescue!” is a Christmas melodrama that takes place in the mountains of Colorado in the the 1890’s. Christopher Claus and his best friend Jingle are looking to start a toy factory, and have traveled to Merryville, CO. Merryville’s mayor, Mondo Crankypants, has raised taxes on the good people of his town, and decreed that no toys or decorations are to be allowed in Merryville.
Miss Merry Mary Merryweather must appeal to Chris and Jingle, when all the presents in town disappear! Can Chris and Jingle find the presents, save Christmas, and deliver the poor town of Merryvile from it’s Great Depression?
The melodrama is followed by a Christmas sing-along intermission and our fun-filled Holiday themed Vaudeville style Olio with crazy costumes, songs, dances and jokes!
