This new three-act play by A. Shepherd takes on the style of a comedy farce with kooky characters, crazy situations and lots of laughs.
It all starts in a rundown playhouse where only a miracle (or three) can save the day. A last ditch effort to cull money for repairs to save their beloved theater launches the actors into a hurried production of a live radio broadcast of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
To complicate matters, the actors make a few well-meaning but poorly executed bad decisions, the first of which is kidnapping the county inspector three days before the opening of their Christmas show! A mix of budding romances, quirky actors, potential investors and an overworked producer help make this show-within-a-show a comedy experience for the whole family.
Directed by KayD and Jason Quinn, Mt. Pleasant; the cast includes Ryan Cox, Hillary Smith and Carrie Christensen, Fairview; Jason Quinn, Simon Quinn, Kelsen Spencer and Bryan Spencer, Mt. Pleasant; Sarah Anderson, Marc Anderson, Amy Shepherd and Savanna Shepherd, Fountain Green; and Brett Blackham of Ephraim.
A. Shepherd, the playwright of Miracle at the Monty, is the author of the new novel To Wake a Sleeping Child and a proud theatre nerd that prefers anonymity and anything coconut. She makes her home in Sanpete County with her husband and children.
