Show background: The Little Town of Christmas written by Pat Cook from Eldridge Publishing Co. is a comedy package of 12 yuletide sketches just perfect for an evening’s entertainment this holiday season Everybody in the little town of Christmas is friendly and funny and you’ll meet them all, including Skeezix and Sylvester, an elf comedy team that is short in stature and long in laughter; Dancer, the reindeer with a wacky sense of humor; Mrs. Claus, the REAL boss of the outfit; and a hilarious street corner Santa, tested and almost bested by one tough little kid with a sticky sucker. Also included are old favorite stories such as “Twas the Night Before Christmas” and “A Christmas Carol,” updated and aimed right for the funny bone, of course. Throw in a wandering group of carolers who cough and sneeze on cue, three kids trying their best to be wise men in the Christmas play, and a riotous lecture on Christmas etiquette, and you’re in for an evening of holiday laughter and warmth.
