Ever since a major life tragedy befell Grandpa Howard on Christmas 25 years ago, he's refused to celebrate it -- making life around the holiday season miserable for his family, his friends and himself. Charity for the less fortunate? An important family loan? Good will toward his neighbors? Bah! Humbug! But when tragedy threatens his favorite granddaughter, Grandpa Howard's true colors are revealed, and he must fight off his painful past to show everyone the true spirit of Christmas. Presented at Theatre Suburbia, Grandpa's Holly Jolly Christmas is a heartwarming way to usher in the holiday season.
