Yuletide joy with holiday family fun…Texas style! December in the Lone Star State – the holiday treat Christmas Belles comes to Austin for The City Theatre Company’s 2017 holiday season. When a church Christmas program spins hilariously out of control, there will be plenty of laughs in the soon to be classic southern comedy, authored by America’s favorite writing trio Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten.
Santa Claus is coming to town. Or is he?
It’s Christmas-time in Fayro, Texas, and CTC welcomes back the Futrelle sisters. Frankie, Twink, and Honey Raye are not exactly in a festive mood. Frankie is overdue with her second set of twins, Twink is bitter about a recent jilting which finds her behind bars, and Honey Raye is trying to keep the Tabernacle of the Lamb’s Christmas Pageant from spiraling out of control. Things are not looking promising: the former director is ruthless in her attempts to take over the show, the celebrity Santa is passing a kidney stone, the cast is dropping like flies to food poisoning from the pancake supper, and a long-kept family secret so desperately needs to be revealed. And on top of everything, the pageant will be shown live on cable access television for the first time ever. In true Futrelle fashion, the feuding sisters pull together to present a Christmas program the citizens of Fayro will never forget. Christmas Belles will bring joy to your world!
