    Dates postponed to the 66th Season; Replaces Sordid Lives

    by Louis Santeiro

    Directed by Crystal E. Mata

    Nelson Cruz, the youngest son of the Cruz family, is returning home for the weekend to introduce his girlfriend to the family. He comes home only to find everyone in the household occupied with their own plans. Nelson’s mother, Dahlia, is obsessed with retrieving her husband from his new girlfriend; Eddie, the eldest son, shows up with his pregnant girlfriend; and pandemonium strikes when Dolores, Dahlia’s sister, sees the face of the Holy Virgin in a tortilla. The miracle brings hordes of believers and reporters to camp out on their lawn. As they struggle with beliefs and conflicts, the endurance of family love is revealed to be the real miracle.

    a Comedy by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, Jamie Wooten

    Directed by Julie Owen

    From the writers of last season’s A Doublewide, Texas Christmas, we bring you this season’s holiday fare. It's Christmas-time in the small town of Fayro, Texas, and the Futrelle Sisters - Frankie, Twink and Honey Raye - are not exactly 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-flash-suffering Honey Raye is desperately trying to keep the Tabernacle of the Lamb's Christmas Program from spiraling into chaos.  For those unable to attend in person, we are happy to offer, an option to purchase a link to view the production privately at any time on your device(s) from December 18 through December 20, for $10. You may redeem Flex Passes for the streaming dates.

  • Love Letters

    Russell Stage

    by A.R. Gurney | Directed by Gregory R. Brown

    As a pre-Valentine's gift to our patrons, follow Melissa and Andy's relationship through letters exchanged over a lifetime between two people who grew up together, went their separate ways, but continued to share confidences. As the actors read the letters aloud, what is created is an evocative, touching, frequently funny but always telling pair of character studies in which what is implied is as revealing and meaningful as what is actually written down.
