The Holiday Channel Christmas Movie Wonderthon is written by: Don Zolidis

Christmas: a time for magic. A time for the traditions we cherish. A time to watch as many original TV movies as a human being can possibly endure. But now with The Holiday Channel Christmas Movie Wonderthon, you can enjoy the sugar rush of six Christmas movies all at once! Welcome to Hopewood Falls, Vermont, where singles in adorable sweaters converge to look for love. Can disguises help royalty and/or movie stars find the down-to-earth connections they crave? Will evil city slickers destroy charming inns and/or Christmas tree farms? Isn't it a little creepy for a meet-cute to depend on one person being in a coma? Grab a hot chocolate and your favorite wise single friend to find out in this wildly entertaining parody of holiday rom-coms.

Casting Needs:
7 W, 7 M, 2 Any

Character Descriptions:


HOLLY, owner of the Evergreen Inn in Hopewood Falls, Vermont.
A heart of gold.

BRETT, stranded by a snowstorm, but secretly a prince from
Artemisia, a tiny aristocratic country in Europe that no one
has ever heard of. Luckily, he’s rich, y’all.

JOY, a romance novelist, visiting the inn to try to break her writer’s

PAUL, a rival romance novelist, running his own writer’s retreat—
kind of a self-important jerk, but with the love of the right
woman, he’s probably a pretty nice guy.

CAROL, a war reporter, home for the holidays, tired of big city life.

JACKSON, 35, a veterinarian, who owns two golden retrievers.

MERRY, in town to search out the perfect Christmas tree for the
big Christmas celebration in the big city. A real estate lawyer
businessperson with no time for love.

BLAKE, rugged, owner of a tree farm. He’s heartbroken but oh-so-

KRIS, the son of the former of Santa Claus in the town parade, but he
has troubles, y’all. Troubles. Currently working as a real estate
lawyer businessperson.

NOELLE, owner of the oldest Christmas ornament boutique in
town, charged with helping Kris quit his job and become a full
time Santa. Filled with the Christmas spirit.

SVEN, the secret prince of Broxtenburg, which is another tiny
aristocratic country in Europe that no one has ever heard of.
Shocker, he’s also rich as heck.

RITA, movie star filming a movie in Hopewood Falls, but pretend-
ing to be an ordinary girl.

Other Characters:
LAERTES, The real Estate Developer Guy. We do not like him.

BRIDGETTE, the red-headed best friend of all the women. Why not.
