Andy has a sweet Catholic mother, a crotchety Catholic father, and an intellectually impaired younger brother named Mickey.  When he brings his Jewish atheist fiancée to meet them all on Christmas Eve, he encounters even more drama than he expected.  It seems that an ancient, wise and witty spirit has possessed Mickey and is intent on healing the family’s wounds.

“’Greetings!’ takes a look at what is really important during the holidays, and during the other 364 days of the year as well,” said Charisa Ramsey, the show’s director.  “It forces one family to really examine what they believe and what is truly important to them.”

Playing Andy and his fiancée Randi are Matthew Bejjani and Ashley Hothan, with Ty Young as Andy’s intellectually challenged brother, Mickey.  Julie Bratt and Bruce Hahn bring to life Andy and Mickey’s parents, Emily and Phil Gorski.
