George Cron, director of A Class Act Productions, says his dear friend, the late Le Wilhelm, "has written some very delightful, funny, as well as sweet and poignant, Christmas stories, so I compiled three of these and put them together."
In the "Walmart" story, an auto mechanic is struggling during the holidays, when his "lazy, conniving uncle (played by Kevin Keppy) comes up with the brilliant (?) idea that they should rob the Walmart on Christmas Eve because he heard that they're going to have low security that night!"
As for the "Other Christmas Stories" mentioned in the title, George Cron selected two other Le Wilhelm one-acts. The Road to Nineveh features two very lonely people in a diner who get to know each other "in a warm, friendly, romantic way." And Where the Snowflakes Bloom "deals with two homeless women and a very kind night watchman who lets them into the office building against (company) policy."
