“A Cold Hearted Christmas”

‘Tis just before Christmas and all about town, E.B. Neazer Enterprises is stirring and shutting everyone down. E.B. Neazer is the meanest, nastiest “grinchiest” citizen in town. He owns everything and hates everyone and on Christmas Eve he’s decided now is the time to spread his own wicked brand of Christmas cheer. It appears he’s planning on closing the orphanage, buying out the bordello, firing his only employee, and giving Marshal Jim Courtright a headache.

What will become of poor Sister Mary Agnostic and her precious little orphans if Neazer shuts down her operation? Will she unleash her wrath to protect the children? Miss Sarah Ann Dippity, the local madam, must make a living and can’t do that if Neazer buys her out. You can bet she’s not going to take this lying down. And then there’s Bob Scratchit, Neazer Enterprises’ only employee. He barely makes enough to feed himself and his son, Itty Bitty Bob. Will he snap once Neazer fires him?

It seems our hero, Marshal Jim Courtright, will never get his Christmas stocking hung by the chimney with care, unless you join the posse and help find out who’s been naughty and who’s been nice. Hitch up the one-horse sleigh and join us for our interactive comedy murder mystery dinner experience.

Cast of Characters

Marshal Jim Courtright: Jim is an all around good guy struggling to maintain law and order in the wackiest “Wild West” imaginable. All he wants this Christmas Eve is to sing carols and trim the tree, but E.B. Neazer is creating work for him and putting a serious damper on his holiday cheer.

E.B. Neazer: The town’s wealthiest and most thoroughly despicable citizen. Perpetually on Santa’s “naughty” list, he’s a mean one that will stop at nothing to get what he wants! If Neazer keeps this up someone might just scratch him off their Christmas list for good!

Bob Scratchit: Poor Bob, it’s a blue, blue Christmas Eve for him this year. His wife has run off leaving him to raise their adopted son alone and that’s near impossible on the meager salary Neazer pays him. Will poor Bob’s situation ever melt Neazers cold, cold heart?

Miss Sarah Ann Dippity: The madam of the local saloon, Sarah is spreading her own brand of Christmas cheer for the holidays. She’s wishing Santa would put Marshal Courtright under the mistletoe this Christmas.  However, Neazer’s holiday surprise could be her establishment’s demise.

 

Sister Mary Agnostic: Sister Mary has a lot of bad habits! One of which is keeping secrets! The sister plans to keep the children in her orphanage very busy this Christmas Eve as she attempts to put a smile on Neazers face. The sister will soon find out she cannot rule over Neazer!
