Full of snappy one-liners and zany situations, playwrights Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten have once again mined the South for all it’s comic gold. This team write extensively for television sitcoms such as The Golden Girls notoriously putting their crazy characters in outrageously funny predicaments, much to the delight of the audience. South City’s previous shows by this team such as Dearly Departed, The Dixie Swim Club, and Mama Won’t Fly sold out!

 

So what can you expect this time? 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.  It's Christmas-time in the small town of Fayro, Texas, and the Futrelle Sisters are not exactly in a festive mood. A cranky Frankie is weeks overdue with her second set of twins. Twink, recently jilted and bitter about it, is in jail for inadvertently burning down half the town. And hot-flash-suffering Honey Raye is desperately trying to keep the Tabernacle of the Lamb's Christmas Program from spiraling into chaos. But things are not looking too promising: Miss Geneva, the ousted director of the previous twenty-seven productions, is ruthless in her attempts to take over the show. The celebrity guest Santa Claus—played by Frankie's long-suffering husband, Dub—is passing a kidney stone. One of the shepherds refuses to watch over his flock by night without pulling his little red wagon behind him. And the entire cast is dropping like flies due to food poisoning from the Band Boosters' Pancake Supper. And when Frankie lets slip a family secret that has been carefully guarded for decades, all hope for a successful Christmas program seems lost, even with an Elvis impersonator at the manger. But in true Futrelle fashion, the feuding sisters find a way to pull together in order to present a Christmas program the citizens of Fayro will never forget. Their hilarious holiday journey through a misadventure-filled Christmas Eve is guaranteed to bring joy to your world!

 

Director Sharon B. Morgan leads a cast filled with talent that includes Dianne Rowe, Ashley Richardson, Michael Wilbanks, Dianna Murphree, Donna Love, Kathy Scruggs, Rachael Arledge, Dale Jones, Clark French, Marlene Wallace, and Jason Bearden.
