LionsBayHouseConcert:: "The Sanders Family Christmas" Sing-Along Radio Play
The setting is a Baptist Church near the Blue Ridge Mountains. The time is December 24, 1941. 18 days AFTER Pearl Harbour. America has just entered the WWII. And The Sander’s Family is preparing to send one of their own, their only son Denis Sanders, off to war. Pastor Mervin Oglethorpe and the rest of the Sanders Family reflect and celebrate with touching family stories and southern gospel Christmas song.
Hosted at a private waterfront home overlooking Howe Sound, this mini production and heartfelt sing-a-long is brought to life by the Midnight Theatre Collective, featuring perfomers: Damon Calderwood (Burl Sanders), Gordon Roberts (Stanley Sanders), Lalainia Lindbjerg (Vera Sanders), Matthew Simmons (Denis Sanders), Stephen Bulat (Cousin Clem), Elaine Lindbjerg (Aunt), and Melanie Thompson.
Seats are limited to 40. This event will be presented as a radio play.
There's simply no better way to get in the Christmas spirit than participating in a sing-along inspired by "The Sanders Family Christmas"! The audience IS the congregation, so come dressed in costume if you can. Please bring a favorite drink and appetizer to share! And we will be live-streaming the radio play audio on our FaceBook page.
We hope YOU can come celebrate arts and fellowship in our small community as this promises to be a truly unforgettable evening to be remembered for years to come. AND tell your friends to tune in.
