A meteor streaks out of the southern sky and lands near the town of Latigo, Texas - a place so small that it's about to drop off the map. Maybe the miracle of the meteor will attract some attention. Certainly it's attracting something! There are, indeed, creatures from an alien environment in Latigo. What the natives don't know is that they are from Poughkeepsie, New York. This comic farce could only happen when worlds apparently collide.

Dashing Through The Snow

Show Dates: November 30, December 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 2018
It's four days before Christmas in the tiny town of Tinsel, Texas, and a colorful parade of eccentric guests arrive at the Snowflake Inn and deck the halls with holiday hilarity. Trina, the harried yet upbeat innkeeper of this B&B, has more than she can handle coping with these nuttier-than-a-fruitcake lodgers. Hoyt and his sister, Donna Jo, make the mistake of trying to end a thirty-year feud between their curmudgeonly aunts, Ennis and Della, with sidesplitting results. Ainsley and Lenora, self-involved actors from a lower-than-low-budget touring production of A Christmas Carol, descend on the Inn to fulfill a promise, leaving comedic chaos in their wake.
