Would you like to see a Christmas pageant? How about a Christmas mystery? Or maybe a comedy will be what gets you in the holiday spirit. Tater Patch Players is rehearsing right now to bring you all three in one delightful play. The Charitable Sisterhood Christmas Spectacular by Bo Wilson is a show that will entertain and charm you on many levels. You’ll laugh at the ladies of the Second Trinity Victory Church as they struggle to organize their annual Christmas pageant with only two weeks left. There are plenty of pitfalls for them to overcome. The greatest challenge, though, is finding out who stole the Baby Jesus from their life-size Nativity. Everyone has an opinion about who did it. One of the ladies, Bea, is so sure she knows who is responsible she sets out on her own to reveal the culprit. Needless to say, she is not a Sherlock Holmes, so her efforts make for more comedy than mystery.
Beyond this story line, there are many more entertaining scenes. You’ll hear a trailer park holiday tale. There are glimpses of the chaos behind the scenes, in the church basement. You will be introduced to zany characters galore, including the scheming pastor’s wife from the other church in town who shows up to report the disappearance of their Nativity’s Joseph.
The staging is ingeniously handled by Director Jan Simpson. She and the cast cleverly show you how the short-handed sisterhood managed to have two actresses play six different parts. The clever set and props, created by the talented Tater Patch scenery crew, are an endless delight. There are so many fun characters and scenes in this play, that laughter is guaranteed. While the show is hilarious, amid the mysteries and the antics, there is also a genuine Christmas message. All of that makes The Charitable Sisterhood Christmas Spectacular a great show for you and all your holiday guests to see.
