The script is by Arthur Yorinks and the performance is conceived and directed by Elliott Forrest.

The cast also includes Ivoryton Playhouse Artistic Director, Jacqueline Hubbard, as well as Erik Bloomquist, Collin L. Howard, Josh Powell, Sarah Jo Provost and Tess Santarsiero. Fred Newman of A Prairie Home Companion, will be the on stage Foley artist, lending his creative talents to add mystery and atmosphere to this well-loved holiday classic.

Performances will be at the Ivoryton Playhouse on Sunday, December 8th at 3pm and Monday, December 9th at 7:30pm.
