Hallmark Fan Favorite, Maxine, Returning to Branson
Maxine will star in a live-action musical version of A Christmas Carol - The bright lights of Branson are set to shine on a brand new star of the stage, although there's a good chance she might find a reason to complain about them. During the 2017 Christmas season, Maxine, Hallmark Cards' self-appointed "Queen of Crabbiness," will star in "Maxine's Christmas Carol", a twist on the Charles Dickens' classic holiday story, "A Christmas Carol." The live-action musical is getting the full Maxine treatment and will feature ghosts, songs, plenty of attitude, and even a role for Maxine's dog Floyd.
"Maxine's 'tell it like it is' personality is the perfect fit for this singing, dancing, crabby version of the Dickens classic," said Tom Brantman Hallmark Executive Producer of Maxine Productions. "We think Maxine will bring the crabbiest, and funniest, Christmas that Branson has ever seen."
For nearly 30 years Maxine has been one of Hallmark's most popular characters. Since her first appearance on a greeting card she has gone on to have her say on everything from books to calendars to Christmas ornaments and her lovably cantankerous personality continues to hit a chord with fans of all ages.
"We're delighted to welcome back Hallmark and Maxine to Branson and expect she'll have plenty to say about the most wonderful time of the year," said Jeff Seifried, President/CEO, Branson/Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce and Convention & Visitors Bureau. "Her special brand of humor is sure to make this a Christmas season we won't soon forget and will enjoy for many years to come."
