A church Christmas program spins hilariously out
of control in this Southern farce about squabbling
sisters, family secrets, a surly Santa, a vengeful
sheep and a reluctant Elvis impersonator. 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. But things are not looking too promising:
Miss Geneva, the ousted director of the previous
twenty-seven productions, is ruthless in her
attempts to take over the show. The celebrity
guest Santa Claus—played by Frankie's long-
suffering husband, Dub—is passing a kidney stone.
One of the shepherds refuses to watch over his
flock by night without pulling his little red
wagon behind him. And the entire cast is dropping
like flies due to food poisoning from the Band
Boosters' Pancake Supper. And when Frankie lets
slip a family secret that has been carefully
guarded for decades, all hope for a successful
Christmas program seems lost, even with an Elvis
impersonator at the manger. But in true Futrelle
fashion, the feuding sisters find a way to pull
together in order to present a Christmas program
the citizens of Fayro will never forget. Their
hilarious holiday journey through a misadventure-
filled Christmas Eve is guaranteed to bring joy to
your world!

Geneva Musgrave, 50-60's crusty owner of the town
flower shop and the local town gossip. If you want
something to be spread easy as melted butter, talk
to Geneva.

Honey Raye Futrelle, 50ish, oldest Futrelle
sister, sexy, vivacious go- getter, who is
"enjoying" the wonderful world of menopause.

Gina Jo (G.J.) Dubberly, Frankie and Dub's
daughter, 20's guileless and enthusiastic. She is
your typical Daisy Duke sort of girl. Loves the
life she currently lives and loves her
family more than life itself.

John Curtis Buntner, 35-55, deputy sheriff, loves
the ladies just as much as he loves his donuts and

Twink Futrelle, middle Futrelle sister, 40's – the
"black sheep". She is loud and so is her style -
very sexy and not scared to show off a little skin
to get what she needs. She is the toughest of
the sisters.

Dub Dubberly, Frankie's husband, 40's your typical
trailer park husband. Life revolves around NASCAR,
hunting, and drinking beer. He loves his
wife more than he may show.

Frankie Futrelle Dubberly, youngest Futrelle
sister, 40's, pregnant with her 2nd set of twins.
She is the most normal of the sisters but still
out there. She is a wonderful mother and if
full of wit.

Rhonda Lynn Lampley, 50's, flashy manager of The
Dairy Dog. There is a secret about her, and likes
to do whatever it takes to try to fit in. She is a
chameleon and copies what is around her. She is a
cross between Martha Stewart and Paula Dean.

Justin Waverly, 20's, interim Pastor at the
Tabernacle of the Lamb, very sweet and innocent,
doesn't like confrontation and is love with GJ.

Raynerd Chisum, (adult male) part-time employee at
The Dairy Dog, live is his world is very simple,
and for all the hard times there is always a place
for the little red wagon. He is slow in his
thoughts and speech but he always speaks from the

Patsy Price, 40-60, elegant society matron. She is
a high class, well as high as you can get in a
trailer park. She is never wrong, and knows
everything there is to know about the whole
existence of man-kind.
