Tis just before Christmas and all about town, E.B. Neazer Enterprises is shutting everyone down! That’s right cowboy, it’s wilder than a herd of loco longhorns around here as that ol’ Neazer plans on putting the town “on ice” just before Christmas Eve. What will become of Sister Mary Agnostic and here poor sweet orphans? Is Miss Sarah Ann Dippity, the local madam, going to take this lying down? Will Bob Scratchit find himself chippn’ in with the fellows at the ice house for a new career? It looks like our hero, Marshal Jim Courtright, will never get his Christmas stocking hung by the chimney with care; unless you join the posse and help us find out who’s been naughty and who’s been nice. Hitch up the one-horse sleigh and join us for this interactive comedy murder mystery dinner experience.
Bob Scratchit (Male, Age Range: 20s-40s) – 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 Neazer’s cold, cold heart? Actor must have strong comedic skills.
