Show Synopsis

Mix together a struggling theater company, a tired production of ”A Christmas Carol”, a really bad actor and a visiting inspector from the National Endowment for the Arts and you end up with Inspecting Carol, the off-the-wall holiday farce. Everything that could possibly go wrong does as a fictitious theater company struggles to mount their annual production of the holiday classic. Bad theater has never been this much fun before!
