Christmas Cafe

by Burton Bumgarner
Directed by Sarah Favorite
Sponsored by: Handy Andy's Nursery

Betty is both waitress and cook at a local cafe, but her customers are anything but ordinary.  Christmas Cafe is a 3 part comedy based on the characters from classic Christmas stories: "The Night Before Christmas," "A Christmas Carol," and "The Nutcracker." 

In "All of the Other Reindeer," Blitzen has entered the cafe and is burned out and upset he is always chosen last for the team. All the other reindeer offer helpful suggestions and even bring in a new reindeer named 'Freud.'  

Jacob Marley's ghost goes to visit Scrooge's house, but is a century and a half too late in "Bah! Humbug!"

In "Nutcrackered," E.T.A. Hoffman has developed writers block.  Young Clara and Fritz tell him a story of a magical nutcracker which gives him inspiration.
