The Christmas Express

by Pat Cook
Directed by Douglas Farren

Show Dates: Nov. 8 – Dec. 8, 2019 (no performance on Thanksgiving, Nov. 28)
“This is the most hopeless place in the world!” Hilda intones as she and Satch argue over what time it is. Hilda dreams of faraway places to fight the tedium of running the Holly Railway Station until, that is, Leo Tannenbaum drops in out of nowhere just before Christmas. Suddenly an old radio springs to life and the local group of carolers begins to sound like the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The whole town now gets into the Christmas spirit. Coincidence? This nostalgic story is full of eccentric small-town characters who begin to discover the true wonder of Christmas, making us all wish that we, too, could take a ride on the Christmas Express.
