At Vincent’s House of Wax, home of the scary monsters, a ghostly visitor comes calling on Christmas Eve. Now, Vincent’s is no ordinary museum of wax figures for when the doors are locked, the wax statues come to life. Tonight Jake, the ghost of Jacob Marley comes calling to pull a “Scrooge” on one of the Monsters. Jake has lost the 3 spirits of Christmas and enlists the aid of Veronica the Vampire, Franklin the Monster and Louise, the Curator of the Museum to help him reenact the past of Wolfgang the Werewolf. Jake puts them under a “Mystical Veil” to show him his life. At that point everything goes haywire as Jake’s true intentions are revealed and Wolfgang’s past brings some unexpected revelations. Come find out what funny things happen when you mix Christmas with Halloween and enjoy some good family fun.
