Get Merry! was an all-new, original play written and directed by Liz Goulet Dubois and Bob Hollis. The story was a fast-paced farce that combined a royally intriguing tale with a healthy dose of song, dance and entertainment provided by our fabulous local talent pool. The story concerned Prince Melvin, who is fated to be engaged by the approaching Winter Solstice. The only problem is that he has fallen in love with Merry, the royal Hairdresser, and the Queen is NOT pleased. With the help of a couple of royal Fools, a show is planned that will seal the marriage deal. The course of true love never did run smooth, though, and it’s a wild ride until the end. Will the Prince get his way? Will the Queen ultimately rule? The pun-laden peroration left audiences laughing wanting more of the same… thus development for the sequel began the very next year.
