Cast Announcement for A Christmas Cactus

The Belfry Theatre in Noblesville is pleased to announce the cast of A Christmas Cactus, the second show in the Hamilton County Theatre Guild’s 53rd season.

By Eliot Byerrum
Directed by Elaine Wagner
Presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

Christmas Eve is tough for private investigator Cactus O’Riley when two fugitives burst into her office looking for justice and a dead detective named Jake Marley. She also doesn’t need her secretary’s mother, who arrives and decides to stay because she thinks this is the Christmas murder-mystery party she has always dreamed of attending. Christmas turns into a dickens of a holiday for Cactus as she solves mysteries, delivers small miracles and dodges the affections of the Deputy D.A. Comedy, mystery and romance converge in this charming Christmas tale where goodwill and justice triumph.
