A Sanders Family Christmas delights

A Sanders Family Christmas

A Sanders Family Christmas, the heart-warming sequel to Connie Ray and Alan Bailey's wildly-successful bluegrass/gospel musical Smoke on the Mountain, returns to the Cumberland County Playhouse for its 16th year!

It's Christmas Eve, 1941, and America is going to war. So is Dennis Sanders of the Sanders Family Singers.

The family gathers for one last holiday sing at Mount Pleasant Baptist Church before Dennis ships out to boot camp.

Join Pastor Mervin Oglethorpe and the rest of the family as they share their music and witness—and send Dennis off with hilarious and touching stories and twenty-five Southern Gospel Christmas favorites.

Directed by Weslie Webster, this year's cast will feature Cody Murphy as Pastor Oglethorpe (pictured above), Patty Payne as June Sanders, Daniel Black as Burl Sanders, Lauren Marshall as Vera Sanders (and the show's Music Director), and Malachi Banegas and Ellie Burnett as twins Dennis and Denise Sanders.

Faith, family and fun abound in this heavenly holiday favorite that's been pleasing Playhouse audiences for 16 years. It's got great gospel music, uproarious laughter and a romantic surprise! A Sanders Family Christmas is rated G and runs through December 21.

Jason Ross stars in Scrooge: The Musical

Jason Ross stars in Scrooge: The Musical

Jason Ross (above) stars in Scrooge: The Musical on the Mainstage through December 20.

The 1992 stage musical, with book, music, and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse, is a close adaptation of of the 1970 musical film Scrooge starring Albert Finney.

Bricusse was nominated for a an Academy Award for the song score he wrote for the film, and most of those songs were carried over to the musical.

Like the film, the musical closely follows the plot of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, in which the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge undergoes a profound experience of redemption over the course of a Christmas Eve night, after being visited by the ghost of his former partner Jacob Marley and the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future.

Watch this page for more information, including photos of Jason and production videos, coming soon!
