Christmas in Hell is a delightful show that celebrates the holidays with tongue securely in cheek. It keeps you chuckling from start to finish, with catchy tunes, bright colors and clever lyrics. This is not your typical Christmas story; it's more Orpheus and Eurydice meets A Christmas Carol meets Benny Hill. What's not to love?!

Looking for a sweet, wholesome holiday musical? Well, this ain’t it! On Christmas Eve, little 6-year-old Davin is mistakenly taken down to Hell. When he returns, not only has he missed Christmas, but he is devilishly changed. To set things right, his father embarks on a bizarre odyssey that eventually leads him down to Hell itself where he makes a wager with Lucifer he can’t possibly win. Christmas in Hell is a wild, irreverent and surprisingly touching musical comedy about the absurd lengths we’ll go to for the ones we love.
