Reno, NV. The Christmas season brings us Ham for the Holidays directed by Joe Atack and written by Shad Willingham. Ham For The Holidays is a hilarious farce set in a fictional town in Georgia, Hamlin. It is Christmas Eve 1939 and the local radio station WHAM (pronounced W-HAM) has a special one-off performance planned for Christmas. WHAM has gathered it’s radio actors together and with the Orson Welles on his way to the station to join the cast for the performance there is great excitement all-round. Unfortunately Georgia has been hit with a freak snowstorm and neither Orson Welles, nor the script for the performance, arrive. “Ham for the Holidays” is a warm-hearted homage to traditional farce with its broad character sketches and pratfalls, and just the lightest tip of the hat to the screwball comedies of the 1930s.
