About the Play
It’s four days before Christmas in the tiny town of Tinsel, Texas, and a colorful parade of guests arrive at the Snowflake Inn to cause holiday comedy. A niece and nephew try to end a 30 year feud; actors from a touring production of A Christmas Carol arrive to fulfill a promise; Mrs. Claus and one of Santa’s elves attempt a lover’s rendezvous, and a family plans spur-of-the-moment Christmas Eve wedding. Trina, the innkeeper of this inn, has more than she can handle coping with these lodgers.
