Dashing Through the Snow

It’s four days before Christmas in Tinsel, Texas, and a colorful parade of eccentric guests arrive at the Snowflake Inn.  Trina, the harried, yet upbeat innkeeper 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.  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.
