Ah, the holidays - what's not to love? Commercialization, awkward gift exchanges, and, as some folks might call it, the War on Christmas. With all this in mind, Whiskey Wry Productions will deliver to your holiday wrapped hands its inaugural show A Sack Full of Coal, a satirical-yet-loving sketch comedy revue about the most joyous of seasons. Before you stand in line at the post office, let us remind you why this is indeed the most wonderful time of the year. If you are very good, there may even be a special guest appearance by everyone' s favorite Alpine Christmas demon, the Krampus. Okay, yes, there will be. He's very important.

A Sack Full of Coal stars Renee Barry, Sarah Blantz, David Cocks, Justin Hamby, John Martin, and Amy Wellman. Musical Direction is by David Kornfeld.
