“Christmas is Cancelled” is a contemporary story of the holiday season with lots of comedy fun and good feelings. Shasta Studios director Wendy James watched the first rehearsal and said she couldn’t help but cry at the sheer beauty of one of the songs.

“The Coppins are master composers for musical theatre,” James said. “There’s not a song in the show that you won’t like.”
