Auditions for upcoming performance. Based on the novel by Chari Davenport, the cast of The Christmas Party comes to life and tells the story of Craig Akino and his famous holiday party. With the party in full swing, Craig suddenly becomes violently ill and is later pronounced dead. While investigating family friend, Marshall Edmonds, soon learns that a lot of time and creativity went into what someone hoped would be the perfect murder!
