The audience-favorite BBC musical Chaps! now rewritten as a hilarious, heart-warming holiday show!
Whoa, Brittania! Panic at the BBC! It's Christmas Eve, 1944. America's favorite singing cowboy Tex Riley and his troupe are late for a special holiday broadcast at the BBC. Out of desperation, Mabel, their tour manager, and Miles, the frantic young producer, grab whomever they can — a snobby announcer, an amiable soundman, a passing soap opera actor — slap them into costume, hand them scripts (after all, it's radio!) and shove them in front of the studio audience. The resulting performance is one England will never forget full of Christmas songs and quirky cowboy tunes.
