QUICK Q & A on 2008 show (2009 coming soon):

When will the DVD be available?
The new show is finally HERE!.  You can order your copy online right now!

How long is it?
There is approx. 55 minutes of all new sketches, scenes, some improv, and more...plus at least 20 extra minutes of bonus features!

What bonus features will be included?
There will be cast bios and a gag reel along with a brief "documentary" of Tommy and Eric's road trip adventure to the real "Black Friday". We also included 2 of our favorite sketches from the 2007, this time with bonus troupe commentary.

How much will it cost and how will I get my copy?

What if I'm having trouble playing my dvd copy?
Do not fret...most people never experience problems.  First make sure your disc is free of smudges and that your player is clean. If all else fails, we will be happy to replace any possible bad copies with a working one at no extra cost.

What characters and sketches are expected?
You can expect to see sketches or at least cameos from many of your favorite characters including Dr.Slappy Von Slime, Christmas Carol, Scrooge, The invisible mariachi band, LeStan, and of course the sheep itself. Plus, there is plenty of new sketches and characters being created just for this show! Expect to see a variety of things skewered from pop-culture to slice of life, many themed around the holidays.  Keep checking back here and in our blog (join and subscribe!) for sneak peaks as we shoot footage!

Is this super big budget hollywood explosion movie making!?
Heck, No. Although all of the talent featured are working writers, performers, and producers each with over a decade of professional experience together and degrees in broadcast productions, film, and theater, we do try to keep this as low budget as possible to keep the cost down for many people to enjoy each year in our annual tradition.  It is much better than most of the things you'd see on the internet and twice as original and funny.

How long do you spend producing the show?
Each year we typically spend about 6-7 full days of shooting and another full week of editting. Prior to that is a couple weeks of writing and pitching ideas of what we want to put in the show.  Prior to that is a year of improv shows, rehearsals, and jamming that feed the creative process.  We try keeping the entire production as close to the holiday season as possible for the right mood, atmosphere, and freshness as if it was a live show.

What's with the drag?
We are secure enough to do such things for theater!  Someone has to play all the required female characters and since Jenny's in Utah, she is missing out on some great roles.

Are there puppets!?
Our favorite duo may show up in random locations. It is a Phantom Sheep, so who knows when it shows up. However, this is NOT one of our family puppet shows that you may've seen in a theme park at all.

Who is the cast?
The show is written and performed by PSP Troupe members Eric Boucher, Tommy Lynch, Jeff Tingley, Greg Seymour, and Kevin Zabawa. This same small group did all the writing, performing, directing, voice-overs, art, and even post-production..

Can I still order last year's if I missed it?
We have a very limited supply left of past year's, but if you act fast we may be able to get you copy.  We also highly reccomend our new "Highlight" dvd special for some of our favorite sketches and scenes from the 05-06 season which is  now available and even features troupe commentary along with several scenes being remastered and touched up!

Are you having a public screening?
By popular demand, we have arranged to have a free public screening for all our friends and fans on December 22nd at the Agawam Public Library in honor of the free live holiday shows that started this tradition. The troupe will be there and also perform a few improv scenes and sketches live. We want as many people to attend; but it'd be great if you still bought a dvd as a souvenir to help support the project.

Is this being aired on TV?
Yes! Amherst Community Cable is excited to air our shows again on Channel 12 in the Amherst/Pelham area including the Best of 05-06 and the 2007 special. starting November 28th!  However, the cablecasted shows won't have everything the dvd has in it.  We have also just released additional clips at our Facebook Fan Group.

What is the rating/age reccomendation?/ Is it "dirty"?
We are proud to not play "cheap" or "blue" and we don't consider ourselves "hardcore" to be "shocking"; but this is for a teen/adult audience as it contains social satire, parody, and some "mature" inuendo.  If we were to give it a safe rating, it'd probably be TV-14.  There is no nudity and we avoid the FCC forbidden words.
