A Candy Coated Christmas Carol
Dec 6 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

It’s a familiar carol with a sugary twist…
think Scrooge meets Wonka!

Emmaleeza Skootch is a powerful executive in the candy business, but she’s far from being sweet, and her overworked factory employees can testify to that! When a long awaited delivery comes from her Uncle Ebenezer, her hopes for “candy-crushing” the competition with the world’s best candy recipe are dashed! In her anger and despair, she is confronted by three late-night visitors… Ghosts? From the past, present & future? No! Angels, of course! But is it too late? Can Miss Skootch’s heart of stone be brought back to life?

With great new songs and some traditional favorites, this is a delicious re-telling of the sweetest story ever… the savior’s birth at Christmas!

Admission is FREE!
