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 Rae - 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 Rae is desperately trying to keep the Tabernacle of the Lamb's Chrismas Program from spiraling into chaos.  But things are not looking too promising:  Miss Geneva, the ousted directed 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 fo 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 fasion, the feuding sisters find a way to pull together in order to present a Christma 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!
