Published Reviews

"It's a tale with a twist for all ages...insightful, while delightfully entertaining. The theatre was awash with applause and laughter."

Taylor Pero, Associated Content

"Not the usual holiday entertainment, it's a tall cool club soda after a quart of egg nog."

Derek Donovan, Kansas City Star

"...roaringly funny, yet chock-full of thoughtful commentary on the season, people and what Christmas really means."

Robert L. McKinney, Special to the Herald Courier
