Homicide  at  the  Tacky  Sweater  Shindig

Attention, Holly Hills residents: It's time to circle the date and set your reminders—the much-anticipated Tacky Sweater Shindig is swiftly approaching! This delightful celebration is set to unfold in the grandeur of the Silver Bells Ballroom at Snowflake Manor. Prepare to don your most outrageously tacky sweater as you join a gathering filled with engaging company, delectable cuisine, and exceptional entertainment. It's an evening destined to forge unforgettable Christmas memories that will last a lifetime. Make sure you're dressed in your festive, tacky sweater best!

On a separate note, whispers of townsfolk seeking revenge during this festive occasion are completely unfounded. Everyone's safety is paramount, and the Snowflake Manor team is committed to ensuring a drama-free environment. This is where your adventure begins—a story brimming with joy, community spirit, and perhaps a little holiday mischief. 

Guest List

Martha May Bells is an heiress who always gets what she wants—except for her secret childhood crush. She has mastered the art of eavesdropping, so if you have skeletons in your cupboard, it is best not to breathe a word of them. The neighbors get annoyed by Martha May during the holiday season because she is ultra-competitive with her Christmas décor.
Suggested Costume: Tacky but elegant Christmas sweater. Hair in an outrageous Christmas-inspired updo.

Carol Knight is one of the most friendly people you will ever have the pleasure of meeting. As a manicurist, Carol knows almost everybody in Holly Hills because they are on her client list. However, she stresses during the holidays since her eccentric brother comes to town.
Suggested Costume: Tacky sweater. Tacky Christmas accessories to go with your sweater.


Dog Groomer
Sam Manger is the obnoxious dog groomer at Manger Mutt Cuts. Sam is an animal lover and takes excellent care of animals. However, this groomer usually has horrible ideas for pet haircuts. Sam’s newest style is the box cut, and the poodles of Holly Hills are all hiding in closets until their hair grows back.
Suggested Costume: Tacky sweater. Print off pictures of ridiculous dog grooming cuts to bring with you as your portfolio (optional).


Eddie Evergreen is an obnoxious baker at Cousin Eddie’s Cookies.  Eddie lives life without worry and doesn’t care about being judged. The townsfolk of Holly Hills nicknamed Eddie 3C, which stands for crass, cluttered, and chaotic.
Suggested Costume: Tacky sweater. A spatula or whisk and a chef’s hat are optional accessories.


Display Design Manager
Ginger Starry is the manipulative display designer for Nogstrum’s Department Store. She inherited the role of display design manager when her boss choked on a piece of fruitcake at the company’s holiday party. Ginger also takes on other part-time positions around town to make ends meet.
Suggested Costume: Tacky sweater.  Very over-the-top Christmas accessories.


Farrah Frost plays the role of The Sugarplum Fairy at the Decking Halls Playhouse.  Farrah is a beautiful ballerina who teaches private lessons to the kids of Holly Hills in the offseason. During the holidays, however, Farrah is always on her toes.
Suggested Costume: Tacky sweater.  Ballet shoes & fairy wings are optional accessories.


Olympic Ice Dancer
Roxy Rudolph is an enigma to most people of Holly Hills. She is a talented Olympic Silver Medalist and U.S. National Champion ice dancer. Roxy has decided to put her skates away, slow down the pace, and enjoy life. She plans to open an eggnog shop on Winter Street next to Cousin Eddie’s Cookies.
Suggested Costume: Tacky sweater.  Silver medal as an optional prop.


Candy Store Owner, Furkus Fudge
Scut Furkus, once the notorious neighborhood bully tormenting the Sugar Plum Point subdivision for many years, inherited a candy store. Soon after, the townsfolk picketed the store on the sidewalk, so Scut had to turn over a new leaf.  This former bully now ranks among the most helpful individuals in Holly Hills.
Suggested Costume: Tacky sweater.  Coonskin cap as an optional accessory.


Train Conductor
Ralphie Chestnut is genuinely fun to be around because he was born for comedy. A dedicated train conductor for the North Pole Express, he loves to tell jokes during the ride. He’s known for the story about his mother buying him a BB gun for Christmas after months of begging. He nearly shot himself in the eye the first and last time he pulled the trigger.
Suggested Costume: Tacky sweater. Train engineer cap is optional. Glasses are optional. 


Kevin McAllister is a thirty-something who still lives at home with his parents. Kevin has post-traumatic stress disorder from his childhood when he was home alone, having to fend off burglars on Christmas Day. The holiday season is mentally draining on Kevin, and he is unsure when or if he can get over his Christmas trauma.
Suggested Costume: Tacky sweater.


Mattress Salesman
Howie Langston is a devoted father and overworked mattress salesman. He will do anything to find his son the perfect Christmas present every holiday season. This year, he is at his wit’s end, searching for a Supersonic Man doll.
Suggested Costume: Tacky sweater.


A struggling inventor, Clark Griswall is the traditional family man. He will go to the ends of the earth to make his family happy. However, Clark has a knack for making the wrong decisions and finding trouble.
Suggested Costume: Tacky sweater or any Christmas Vacation movie costume.


Clark Griswall’s family members are a demanding bunch. In addition to his immediate family, he has in-laws flying and driving in for the holidays from all directions. The Griswall house is the most energetic…and dysfunctional house in Holly Hills. 
Suggested Costume: Tacky sweater or any Christmas Vacation movie costume.
