Rented Christmas - The Musical
Directed by Jennie Ortega
This Victorian era musical tells the story of John Dale, a middle-aged bachelor and prominent businessman who has a challenging job for Anne Weston, the proprietor of the local rent shop. He wants to rent a Christmas, not just with a tree and carols, but complete with a wife, a family and all of the happiness for which he has been secretly longing.
Anne believes she has creatively solved the problem of a Christmas family by calling the actors guild, but when the young actors come down with the measles, her last hope is to turn to the local orphanage. A "rented" Christmas soon turns into a new and happy life for all concerned, which makes this a very warm and special holiday treat.
