The Christmas Express
By: Pat Cook
(A Christmas Comedy)

Directed by: Wayne Puchkors

"This is the most hopeless place in the world!" Hilda intones as she dreams of faraway places and only finds tedium in running the Holly Railway Station. That is, until Leo Tannenbaum drops in out of nowhere the day before Christmas Eve. Suddenly, an old radio that hasn't worked in years springs to life, the local group of carolers (which usually yowls like a gang of wet cats) begins to sound like the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the whole town gets the Christmas spirit. Coincidence? …. Or is Leo doing all this? This nostalgic theatrical greeting card is full of eccentric small town characters, wise-cracking their way to finding the true wonder of Christmas. And on the way they make us all wish we could take a ride on The Christmas Express.
