Four Tickets To Christmas

Last fall, I saw an advertisement for auditions for a Christmas play. I thought it might be fun, so I went. Then, I convinced Billy to audition as well. A couple weeks later, we learned that we were to play the main couple, Henry and Lucille. My sister, her husband, and their son also got parts in the play.

The play was called "Four Tickets to Christmas." A brief synopsis of the play:
This dramatic musical grows out of a captivating story set in 1905. When a touring musical family finds no place to go for Christmas, they return to their grandparents' farm in northern Ohio. There they are forced to deal with longstanding conflicts. In the process they learn the importance of following God's unique direction for their lives. New songs and familiar carols are woven together with a turn-of-the-century flavor appropriate for the era.

We had a couple of months of practices and our performances were on December 14 and 15. It was fun to do something different and meet new people. Some of these pictures are small. If you click on them, you can enlarge them.

There is already talk of doing it again next year, with a bigger chorus and more stage sets. I'm glad I'll have several months off before doing it again!
