A Peter N’ Christmas Carol is a hilarious send up the classic Dickens’ Christmas story. When a grumpy Chris is visited on the night before Christmas (or maybe like a week before Christmas, honestly it’s a busy time for these Ghosts), he wastes most of his time with the first Ghost. Now he must decide which of the ghosts he wants to meet before sunrise in order to change his ways. Peter N Chris are masters of parody and theatrical comedy, sending everyday life up to absurd heights. A Peter N’ Christmas Carol promises to be all the things you love about A Christmas Carol, performed the way only Peter N’ Chris can; a fast, smart, hilarious new take on an old classic.
