Slay Ride

or Rudolph the Dead-Nosed Reindeer

by Bert Furiloi and Butch Maxwell
Bert Furioli, Dee McCorkle, Gino Angelo, Arlene Merryman and Butch Maxwell

The 2000 Cast: Tooth Fairy (Bert Furioli), Elfish Prezley (Dee McCorkle), Santa Claus (Gino Angelo), Mrs. Claus (Arlene Merryman) and Easter Bunny (Butch Maxwell).

The setting is Christmas Eve. The place is the North Pole. Santa Claus is preparing to make his annual worldtour, but he is a wreck. Everything has been going wrong this year. The elves have been unruly, his wife is pressuring him for an expensive gift and the reindeer are on strike. Even his ultra-efficient deputy, an oversized Elf, is unable to keep things on track as negotiations break down. Furthermore, Mrs. Claus is tired of Santa’s "poker buddies," Tooth Fairy and Easter Bunny, who have been crashing at their place since Thanksgiving.
