"It's all up to the audience," said director John Mazerolle. "Tiny Tim's ailment might be psoriasis or a permanent cowlick. And the Ghost of Christmas Past could be the Ghost of Cows Ice Cream or Crippling Panic Attacks or Game of Thrones. It's a fun, hilarious, and sincere blast of Christmas cheer that is different every night."

The show includes The Island Improv Company (Mazerolle, Nazim, Johnny Novak, Nadine Salami, Nason Scribner) and cast members Darlene Lund, Stacy Dunn, Sophie MacInnis and Sophia Ball.
