Scrooge Macbeth takes the meaning of “the show must go on” to a whole new level. Bob, Sylvia, Victor, and Renee are the last four actors standing when a food poisoning outbreak sidelines most of the cast on the opening night of the Hartland Community Theatre's holiday production, Shakespeare's classic, The Winter's Tale. But that's not the only setback: Sylvia has just discovered a boatload of red ink in the theatre group's ledger. With impending financial ruin, a shortage of cast members, and an expectant audience just outside the doors, can these four amateur thespians concoct some kind of holiday entertainment in time to save their theatre? Thanks to the ensuing violent collision between everything Christmas and everything Shakespeare, you will never think of Shakespeare or Christmas in quite the same way again.
"Theatre-goers are sure to get some huge laughs at this uber-creative holiday play."
