A Country Christmas Carol 

Season’s Greetings from Marley County, U.S.A., where folks don't have a whole lot, but where everybody's doing what they can to make the Christmas holiday crackle. This new country-western musical version of the great Dickens' classic is a tale of redemption and reunion, community and family, filled with a feisty bunch of characters who deal head-on with life's joys and heartaches.  There’s Banker Scrooge, the meanest man in town; his secretary Bobbie Jo Cratchit, a young widow who sings like Patsy Cline and lives in a trailer community with her two small children, Jane and Tim; Scrooge’s lovable ne'er-do-well nephew Dwight; Lavinia, a good-ol'-girl with big hair and an even bigger heart; plus some decidedly Country Christmas spirits.

A Country Christmas Carol zooms by like a Christmas train.  It’s an inspirational and exhilarating show overflowing with the courage and grit of good folks celebrating the holiday season.
