If you liked last year’s “Dashing Through the Snow” or “The Red Velvet Cake Wars” don’t miss the next installment of this small town in Texas! “A heart-warming reminder of what Christmas is all about…for the whole family!” 

A church Christmas program spins hilariously out of control in this Southern farce about squabbling sisters, family secrets, a surly Santa, a vengeful sheep and a reluctant Elvis impersonator. Frankie is weeks overdue with her second set of twins. And hot-flash-suffering Honey Raye is desperately trying to keep the Tabernacle of the Lamb’s Christmas Program from spiraling into chaos. The celebrity guest Santa Claus is passing a kidney stone. And the entire cast is dropping like flies due to food poisoning from the Band Boosters’ Pancake Supper.

A Mismatched Comedy of Romance.

Run Dates: March 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 15, 19, 20 and 21.

Ah, romance! The happy endings: dashed. The class reunion buffets: devastated. The rules: broken. The building staffs: flashed. But let’s face it, who hasn’t accumulated a little baggage by the time they’re 30-something?

With three less-than-stellar relationships behind her, Phyllis Novak decides to turn from The Man Most Likely to The Man Least Objectionable, and to build, if not love, at least tolerable companionship. When an airline luggage snafu is untangled, Bradley Naughton, dumped his ex and so far down there is nowhere to go but up, becomes the man Phyllis is determined to edit to her liking.

Encouraged by serial divorceé and free spirited best friend Mitzi, and discouraged by self-styled relationship guru Dr. Alexander, do Phyllis and Bradley have any hope to get beyond their disappointing pasts and what-can-they-be-thinking present to be, if not in love, at least in like?

Laughs guaranteed, matching luggage optional!

“The show arrives at its final destination intact with plenty of laughs…” – Marconews.com
