Poor Fred has passed on and all his friends and family have come to pay their last respects at Donny’s Discount House of Death.  Watch as Fred’s mother, widow, Father Sean, the good sister, Donny, Digger and the rest of Fred’s friends offer their throughts on the dearly departed and most importantly – his will.  The show comes complete with pallbearers, coffin and urn.  You bring the mourners!

The Funeral Show is a funny take on passing on.  Just don’t laugh yourself to death!


A full length play set in a small farming community in Upstate New York on Christmas eve.  The Becker family is getting ready for daughter Katherine’s wedding to the home town sweetheart ans newly arrives Marine, Jimmy Lewis.  All the while little Benji Becker, having trouble with the neighborhood bully looks to his grandfather for guidance, since his dad is off fighting in Europe.  Add a snowstorm, a big mouth neighbor, brothers home on leave for their sisters wedding, an escaped German Prisoner of War from a nearby camp who sees grandpa dressed as Santa, a group of neighborhood vigilantesled by a nut who thinks the Beckers are working for the enemy, a local sheriff and priest who try to keep the peace and you ahve a night of mix ups and mayhem.
