The special opens with Elmwood Board President Steve Taylor wandering the unused set on the Playhouse stage, missing the magic of performing shows. Falling asleep and dreaming of live theatre at Elmwood, he suddenly hears singing! He sees Tiffany M. Card, who tells him that THIS is his dream and he has conjured up an “old fashioned holiday show just like when he was a kid, with special guests, champagne and a real live TV audience.” Throughout the evening guests appear with songs, stories, dance – and homemade meatloaf! It’s a dream filled with fun and the hope of the season, and carries Steve back into a happy slumber dreaming about what a wonderful world it will be.
