Three Cat Productions brings us nine merry and merrily awkward Christmas sketches, interspersed with caroling and dance interludes in the jolly holiday tradition. These are new works, dwelling on such winsome themes as a Jewish tween girl’s yuletide fantasies of holly and trim and a suicide hotline worker's attempts to deal with a pill-popping husband who wants to off himself before New Year’s. Elya Faye Bottiger shows fabulous range, and Jaime Coates’s clowning helps liven up otherwise inane bits. But the audience has to suffer through a lot of goo to see the last and best sketch, which hilariously turns the entire cast into giggling third-graders in a pageant about Woden and the pagan origins of Christmas.
