Fall 2015 – First Annual Boughs of Holly Country Club Christmas
directed by Kellie Shrimpton
The show ran from November 24 to 28 2015.
Time: A few days before Christmas, the present
Place: Auditorium of the Boughs of Holly Country Club
While Deborah tries to impress the Boughs of Holly Country Club board with a new Christmas show, the country club’s president, Jocelyn, tries to impress Gertrude Webb, the club’s loan officer, to secure a loan to refurbish the club, as Gertrude keeps approving loans so that she is entered to win a trip to Hawaii. There’s only one thing missing from this Christmas show – Christmas! And if it weren’t for Josh, who manages the country club, there’d probably be no Christmas show. Deborah soon realizes that the only way for the theatre group to impress the board is to cast several board members in their show and what follows is a riotous seasonal romp of yuletide fun. Hilarious situations and oddball characters race in and out as opening night draws near and just when everything seems to be falling apart, in steps Santa Claus.
