Irreverent, audacious, and undoubtedly a little bit sacrilegious – if that sounds like your cup of tea, then you’re going to love it as The Guild Presents Another Sketchy Xmas.
PEI comedy veterans Rob MacDonald and Graham Putnam are beyond excited to be remounting Sketch-22’s hallmark holiday favorite theatrical comedy A Sketchy Xmas. This year’s production promises to be bigger and better than ever, with a newly updated script and a cast of almost two dozen actors joining together to tell a truly whack-a-mole story!
Come along for this hilarious donkey ride to Bethlehem as Another Sketchy Xmas tackles the story of the birth of the baby Jesus. Joseph is suspicious and Mary is in no mood for it. Stoner shepherds are visited by a tired angel. Arrogant wisemen are joined by a puzzling new traveling companion. Desperate gospel writers attempt to add pizzazz to a simple story. And, as in all great stories, an evil ninja shows up in an attempt to ruin everything!
Plus we’ll check in on a rough and tumble down-on-their-luck Charlottetown family as they learn the true meaning of Christmas as power outages, a lack of liquor, familial bickering, and Knut – that oddball foreign border from Norway – all contribute to making sure this is one unforgettable Christmas.
