Set in the early 1900s, “Rented Christmas: The Musical” is a joyful story about a wealthy bachelor who hasn’t enjoyed a real Christmas for years. On a whim, he decides to rent Christmas — a tree with presents, Christmas carols, and a wife and five children — from a local rental shop. Local child actors accept the jobs, but come down with measles. The nearby orphanage saves the day. This story of a “Rented Christmas” will be a perfect way to begin the 2014 Christmas season.
