Ridiculously funny theatre! ... or maybe dramatic, depending on our mood.
A Christmas Carol In Gay Apparel
Written by Karen White and Leigh Burrows
Charles Dicken's A Christmas Carol is such a holiday classic, we couldn't resist but to screw with it. Leaping Thespians' Eleanor S. Crooge has the classic 'humbug' issues as the Dicken's classic character, but with the added burden of being in the closet.
In our parody, the Ghosts of Lesbians Past, Present and Future, show Crooge many scenes of her life, anc try to urge her towards being her authentic self. In between her bouts of seriously disturbed sleep, Crooge goes to work at her yoga clothing company, staffed by a quartet of eccentrics. They try their best to share Christmas cheer despite their employer's tight control and eye on profit. And of course we need Tiny Tim, in this case Tina Timmins, who has the audacity to ask Crooge for a donation to the high school's Gay Straight Alliance.
This show, our fifth original comedy, has sketches, songs, cheery Christmas spirit and, as it turns out, a few things to say about bullying.
