Children’s Community Theater Stage Right Productions presents “A Christmas Cactus” this coming weekend, Friday through Sunday, December 15 – 17, 2017, each night at 7:00pm. The play will take place at the Hillcrest Covenant Church Community Center, 1515 N. First Street in DeKalb.
Christmas Eve is tough for Private Investigator Cactus O’Riley, a white-hot redhead with the holiday blues. She is trying to lure her secretary, Freddie away from her overly protective mother, dodging the affections of Deputy D.A. Windsor, and considering closing her business. She doesn’t need the added aggravation of two fugitives who burst into her office looking for justice and a dead detective named Jake Marley, or Freddie’s mother who arrives to take Freddie home, but decides to stay because she thinks this is a Christmas murder mystery party that she has always dreamed of attending. Christmas turns into a dickens of a holiday for Cactus in this charming contemporary Christmas tale where goodwill and justice triumph.
