The Plight Before Christmas

The Plight Before Christmas

by Fred Cusik and Diane Moore

Directed by Tracy Cathey

In Old El Paso, Ebeneezer Humbug is about to “raise the dickens” by foreclosing on everyone in town… on Christmas Day! He hopes to force Felicity Fuzziwig to marry him, much to the dismay of his clerk, Bob Scratchit, who also wants to marry her. Jake Marley, the partner Humbug cheated out of half a gold mine years before, appears to claim his share. Will memories of Happy Christmases Past unwrap the Present of Joyful Christmases Yet to Come? Stuff your stocking with this cup overflowing of Holiday Jollity, classic melodrama style!
