Synopsis for each show:
Black and Blue Friday
CAST: 4M, 4F, PLUS 3 ROLES THAT CAN BE EITHER
It’s the day after Thanksgiving, and all Ellie and her new husband, Jackson, want is to celebrate their first holiday season at home together.
But their holiday peace and quiet quickly turns into holiday chaos when they are summoned to the security office at the local mall. Seems Ellie’s backwoods relatives were planning to surprise
her with a visit, but first stopped at the store to pick up some paper goods. That’s when the trouble began. What they thought was a big-box store turned out to be a shopping mall full of
frenzied Black Friday shoppers, and, of course, the hillbilly family ended up causing all sorts of trouble. As Ellie’s family unravels their hysterical stories — like Ellie’s brothers
trying to take a ride on the fancy moving staircase only to find themselves sliding around on the ice rink and taking out Santa’s village — one simple truth is revealed. These country bumpkins
might not know much about modern day living, but they sure do understand what the holiday season is about... and it ain’t shopping.
The Living Nativity
CAST: 4M, 4F
It’s Christmas Eve, but the members of Fairlawn Church of the Good Shepherd have somehow found themselves waiting in the town jail until the Justice
of the Peace can hear their case. It all started when the small country church decided to put on a “living” Nativity for the community. The simple, good-natured church members truly meant
no harm. Yet, when one of them decides to convert his mule, Jasper, into a camel, things go awry and the entire Nativity ends up getting arrested and charged with everything from animal cruelty
to arson. Their chaotic and hysterical story unfolds as the members plead their case before the Justice of the Peace, trying to justify their actions, which they learn is their true witness for
Christ. Lots of laughter combined with a meaningful message makes this fast and easy show an absolute delight!
