Auditions

Closed for the Holidays

 Directed by Susan Kuykendall

Closed for the Holidays

After a blizzard shuts down the roads on Christmas Eve eve, a motley crew of travelers finds themselves stranded at the local community center. From the lovelorn drama teacher with a bus full of students, to the quarrelsome couple on the way to their wedding, to the over eager Sheriff ready for some real criminal action, everyone has their own troubles to untangle. But to have a happy holiday, they’re going to need a miracle–or seven, to be exact. A spirited and heart warming comedy with a healthy dash of Christmas magic.
