From the author of the popular Faith County and An Evening of Culture - Faith County II comes a completely different adaptation of the holiday classic, A Christmas Carol. From the bonny shores of England comes the Styckes-Upon-Thump Repertory Theatre Company, a stuffy old travelling troupe embarking on their fifteenth annual farewell tour of the Dickens' tale. The company includes Sir Selsdon Piddock, the consummate actor, in the role of Ebenezer Scrooge, with Mrs. Bettina Salisbury, Dame Rowena Middleton-Lewis, Mrs. Cordelia ffoliet-ffolkes ffortescue Woods, Teddy Shub and Elyot Crummels in multiple supporting roles. Sweet Cynthia Imbry, the general understudy, suddenly finds herself thrust onstage to perform a role she's ill-prepared for! Bettina, the company diva, pretends to be ill, certain the production will be cancelled. However, much to her shock and rage, the show does go on without her! Roles are shuffled at the last minute and poor Cynthia finds herself center stage. The play begins but mid-way through the theatre doors open and in rushes Bettina, determined to reclaim her roles. Mayhem ensues as this professional company scrambles to keep the show going and everything that could possibly go wrong does, to hilarious, ridiculous results!

Basic humor so disagree with other reviews, but maybe it plays better than it reads.

We've all been there--stale material, stale costumes, stale sets, doing it by the numbers.  Sometimes we desperately want to just send it up, blow it up, let everything crash down.  Apply that formula to the most formulaic of shows, "A Christmas Carol", and you have this play.  Cross "Noises Off" or "Play On!" with Dickens, and there you are.  Theater folk will love it for the inside stuff, the actors will love it because "I've been wanting to say things like that for YEARS", and the general public will love it for what they think is a new concept.
