Remember when the TV networks would give some star of the day a brightly lit Christmas wonderland and 18 guest stars for a spectacle known reverently as the Christmas Special? The ETC cast is bringing back this cheesy tradition of goofy sketches, holiday songs, and some visits from some unexpected (and possibly uninvited!) guests. Sit back and enjoy our salute to the variety shows of yore - and maybe even win a prize!

We'd like to tell you what it's about or who the characters are - there's just one problem: we won't know until the audience tells us. Will it be a space adventure with atomic schoolmarms? Or perhaps a medical drama plagued by runaway rhinos? There's only one way to find out - come to the show and tell us which way to go!
