Freddie the Freeloader's Christmas Dinner (aka Red Skelton's 's Christmas Dinner) is a TV special that premiered on HBO on Dec. 13, 1981. The program stars Red Skelton (1913-1997), an American entertainer with national radio and TV acts, including The Red Skelton Show.
In our stage version of the show, Freddie the Freeloader prepares to scrape together money and enjoy a Christmas dinner with his equally poverty-stricken friend, Professor Humperdo, at one of New York's fancy restaurants. Stopping along the way, he visits a hospital and entertains some children for Christmas. The special includes drama, miming, and music for which Skelton was known. In addition to the cast, we're looking for six to eight singers to perform holiday music.
PCT will bring this story to life in a unique holiday-themed production just in time for the holidays.
