The Postal Code warned Jolene about snow, rain and gloom of night, of course. Still, it didn't saynothin'about no hurricanes. Loraine almost has that coveted collection of Legends of the Grand Old Opry spoons finished, but a tragic high school incident might prevent her from singing her way to Dollywood to complete the set.

Jeffrey Moore, Rachel Klem and the usual gang of misfits take audiences back for their fifth Christmas season way out in West Durham, in a broad (and interactive) holiday satire every bit as cheesy as the Doritos-and-spray-on-dairy-like-substance hors d'oeuvres served (at no extra charge).
