This adult Christmas comedy will keep the audience laughing out loud. The high-jinks and humor begin when a man who wants to audition at a small, struggling theatre is mistaken for an inspector with the National Endowment for the Arts. Everyone in the company caters to the bewildered wannabe actor and they give him a role in the current production of "A Christmas Carol." Everything goes wrong and hilarity piles upon hilarity, drawing the play within the play to a truly unexpected ending. The show includes some language that may not be suitable for young children.

“Our first time producing this show was two years ago in the basement of the (former) Do-Dah Deli in Leonardtown. Audiences enjoyed it so much, we have brought it to Three Notch Theatre. We hope our patrons will enjoy it as much the second time around with new cast members” Says Wendy Heidrich, director and founder of The Newtowne Players.

While attending shows, theater-goers will find coffee and refreshments available in the lobby’s Alatte Concession Expressions, and a cash bar.

The Newtowne Players is a non-profit community theatre run by volunteers. For more information on volunteering, auditioning, sponsoring the theatre, information on up-coming events, or reservations, call 301-737-5447, or visit the website at
