Sanders Family Christmas Play in the Old Country Church
produced by Southern Rogue Theatre Company
Performance: December 17th at 2:30 p.m.
The Sanders Family is back at Burritt this December. Southern Rogue Theatre Company and Burritt on the Mountain pair together to bring this hilarious musical favorite to the community. Conceived by Alan Bailey and penned by Connie Ray, this famous sequel of Smoke on the Mountain returns to the Old Country Church at Burritt on the Mountain.
We’ll return to Mount Pleasant, North Carolina, on Christmas Eve of 1941. Reverend Oglethorpe has invited the Sanders to the Baptist Church to sing and witness, thereby getting the congregation into the down-home holiday spirit before the boys, including one of the Sanders’ own, ship off to World War II. The congregation will hear more than two-dozen Christmas carols, many of them vintage hymns, and hilarious yuletide stories from the more or less devout Sanders family members. The play is set in a church which makes the Old Country Church the perfect venue.
