A Christmas Cactus’
Wednesday, December 2
    December is here and it’s time for the annual Christmas play at DayTrippers Dinner Theatre! After an included buffet lunch, it’s time for A Christmas Cactus. Cactus O’Reilly is a fiery redhead with a bad case of the holiday blues. Being a P.I. is a tough business. It’s a Dickens of a Christmas as Cactus digs up long-buried mysteries, unwraps a few small miracles and takes a second chance on love and luck. It’s Christmas Eve and Cactus is facing a tough decision: keep her detective agency open or close it for good. What sort of legacy has she inherited from her predecessor Jake Marley? And who are these orange jumpsuit-wearing men who’ve barged in looking for help? This wonderful Christmas comedy will keep you guessing and laughing.
