It’s Christmas time in the small town of Fayro, Texas, and the Futrelle sisters 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 accidentally 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!

Heehaw - A County Faith Community
Back by popular demand! 2015’s HEE HAW PERSON COUNTY and 2016’s A PERSON COUNTY HEE HAW COUNTRY CHRISTMAS were two of the most popular shows ever presented by the Roxboro Little Theater.

Come join the fun with Buck and Roy, Archie and Junior, Minnie Pearl and Lulu, Vern and Ida Lee, and the whole HEE HAW gang as they romp through Person County’s country life with a lot of gospel songs and church jokes thrown in.
