The Wicked Wenches Parody Troupe presents their Holiday Production: A Xmas Carol: A Christmas Carol Parody

Xmas Carol (Boobs? Humbug!), as told by bordello Madam Charlie Dickins, is the tale of Ebenezer Screwed, a chaste and cantankerous old miser who is visited by the ghost of his former business partner, Jacobina Morally, who warns him to change his ways before he is doomed to an eternity of misery!

A sleepless Screwed is shown the error of his ways by the luminous Ghost of Titmas Past as he relives his younger days. He is escorted about town by the gregarious Ghost of Titmas Present as she reveals to him the true spirit of Titmas! Finally, he is beckoned by the Ghost of Titmas Yet to see clearly the true consequences of denying passion and love!

Will Ebenezer Screwed change his ways before it is too late? Will Tiny Tim always have a limp...? Will you all feel the Titmas Spirit deep, deep, deep, deep, deep, deep, deep, deep down in your souls?Get your tickets now for this sexy and steampunky parody of the holiday classic!

Adpated for the stage by Shari Aronson of Z Puppets Rosenschnoz in Minneapolis, the beloved children's book by Eric A. Kimmel, will chase away all that is snarling and gnashing at you. Scoundrel & Scamp Theatre's live streaming (and outdoor performances in Tucson, AZ) is a tale of standing up to evil with hutzpah and moxie. A weary traveler named Hershel of Ostropol approaches a village where he finds not a single candle lit and townspeople cowering in fear. A band of frightful goblins has taken over the synagogue and have driven the townspeople away. Using wits alone, this clever trickster must face fearsome opponents over the course of the next eight nights. But can Hershel vanquish the shadows and bring the community together once again? 

Share the lights of Hanukkah with Hershel!
