SHOW SYNOPSIS: It’s Christmastime in Fayro, TX, and the Futrelle Sisters – Frankie, Twink and Honey Raye – are not 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-flashing 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 27 productions, is ruthless in her attempts to take over the show. The celebrity guest Santa – 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 pull together to present a Christmas program the citizens of Fayro will never forget.
