Hallmark Presents Maxine's Christmas Carol
“Hallmark Presents Maxine’s Christmas Carol,” and Branson will have a holiday show even the Grinch would envy! Charles Dickens could never have imagined the role of Scrooge inhabited by a sassy sourpuss like Maxine. The call-it-like-she-sees-it, lovable curmudgeon delivers the iconic story with song, dance, and a heaping helping of merry and mirth, sprinkled with the best of her rude mood, and just a dash of attitude! Introduced to us by way of greeting card covers from Hallmark, the self-appointed Queen of Crabbiness, Maxine, has been a popular character from the start. Since her introduction nearly 30 years ago, the ornery oldster’s image has graced a long list of items, including sweatshirts, coffee mugs, and calendars. Transitioning this static character to a live-action musical production must be the biggest challenge yet, but it’s one expertly accomplished; even her pathetic canine companion, Floyd, gets a role in the show!
You can’t pick wrong when choosing a Christmas show in Branson, and you certainly can’t pick any crankier than “Hallmark Presents Maxine’s Christmas Carol!”
