The laughs never stop with this collection of four Holiday themed Melodramas. No holds are barred as television favorites to some traditional Christmas classics get skewered in these light-hearted parodies. Each show has a diverse set of characters designed to put a modern spin on the spirit of the Melodrama. CHEER for the heroic, but frustrated Prairie Magician. BOO the villainous land baron with the hypnotic hairpiece, and OOH-AAH the four young single ladies adjusting to life in Manhattan (Kansas). These interactive Melodramas are simple to produce and appeal to all types of groups. Both cast and audience alike will have an uproariously good time!
Santa and The City was first performed at Mosley Street Melodramas in Wichita, Kansas on November 8, 2007 under the direction of John Boldenow.

CHORUS SIZE

N/A (Not a musical)

CAROL BELL - The heroine of our story. She is a writer for The Manhattan Mercury. She is very sweet, but street wise. She loves the holidays so much, every time someone says her name, she is compelled to sing a Christmas Carol.
PANDORA - Owner of the local saloon, and our vamp. She enjoys a good time, however, her best asset is her head for business.
CHERLITTE - Twice divorced, but still an optimist about relationships. Very impressionable and a hopeless romantic, she will emphasize a point she has just made by flipping her long black hair.
HUGE - Our Hero and Carol’s boyfriend. He has the cavalier attitude of someone with gentle confidence. His family background is a mystery.
DONALD TRAMP - A greedy land baron from back East, and our villain. His vanity is only matched by his desire to control everything, and everyone. His hair has hypnotic powers.
KEEBLER - Tramp’s apprentice. He is ambitious, but friendly and sweet. He wants to please Tramp, but he definitely knows the difference between right and wrong. More often than not, his conscience gets the best of him.
