Plot Synopsis:

Jan is a young wife recovering from a nervous disorder. She and her husband rent a remote cabin from an odd farmer who delights in telling gruesome ghost stories. Then the husband’s strange sister arrives, and all manner of frightening events occur. What happens to fragile Jan as bodies appear and disappear gives this classic thriller its tremendously frightening impact.

In search of three high energy, improvisational-type actors (age, sex not relevant to the roles) for Theatre Woodstock’s production of ‘Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some)’.

Three actors decide to perform every Christmas story ever told, plus Christmas traditions from around the world, complete with carols and opportunities for audience participation. It is a fast-paced, interactive romp through the holiday season.
