This is not your typical holiday party. Everyone at Smith and Associates is instructed to take an envelope and are informed that the company is making cuts. Therefore, whoever has a pink slip in their envelope, well… you’re fired! The crowd is aghast! Later on, they get a visit from the executive upstairs, Mr. Associates! “Smith, I heard about your plan with the envelopes and the pink slip.” The audience prepares for severe consequences for this rash behavior. However, Mr. Associates responds with “I think it’s great!” The actor who plays Mr. Associates seemed to be reprising his role as J. Peterman in Zombie Seinfeld. Just as before, his performance was hilarious.
Santa Claus is going through some rough times. Poor Santa found out Mrs. Claus is sleeping with the three wise men and now they are getting divorced. Santa can’t keep up his merry persona and is doing a terrible job trying to be jolly at the mall in Toledo, Ohio. The boss knows he is the real St. Nick, but he has to fire him anyway. The story line is very comical as it displays the all too human side of this cherished character and his dealings with life’s tough issues.
This was the final performance by EEK! Theatre at the Gorilla Tango Theatre. Follow their Facebook page to find out where they will be next!
