What Is A Dickens Of A Holiday! About?
According to the Hallmark synopsis, Christmas Eve marks the 100th anniversary of Dickens’ Days in Dickens, Ohio. This is a Victorian festival that ends with the community theatre’s production of A Christmas Carol.
However, when the lead actor is forced to drop out, director Cassie (D’Orsay) reaches out to Dickens’ native and former High School classmate, Jake (Polaha). Jake is an action movie star who wants more serious roles in Hollywood.
Work between Cassie and Jake is problematic at first, but the more they rehearse and take part in the holiday activities of Dickens’ Days, the more Cassie and Jake warm up to each other. However, it’s up to director Cassie to show Jake the actor he’s capable of a serious, leading-man role.
In addition, Jake helps Cassie realize she’s still the most likely to succeed, just in roles she never expected: a teacher, a coach, and a leader.
