Next Door Escapes & Entertainment Presents
Christmas in My Hometown
By Steve Cowen and Scott Brister
The Broken Arrow Community Playhouse is proud to present the ala carte production of an original holiday musical, “Christmas in My Hometown,” Dec. 2, 3, 9 and 10 at 7:30 p.m. and Dec. 4 and 11 at 2 p.m. here at the Playhouse 1800 S. Main St. Broken Arrow, OK.
Rose Magness, the story’s matriarchal narrator, and songs, such as the show-opening “Because It’s Christmas,” the title song “Christmas In My Hometown,” and the heartfelt “Show Me The Way To Bring Christmas,” weave the audience through a menagerie of holiday emotions that spans three Christmases. The first act reflects how one person’s actions can impact an entire city during the holiday season. Rose invites the audience into her neighborhood as “The Doors of Christmas” are opened for a look into the lives of five families, and it all revolves around the neighborhood’s long-standing door decorating contest.
“This is my first time working directly with the authors and composer of a show,” said Don Tabberer, who returns to direct his first show at the BACP in 20 years. “It’s exciting to be part of the first production of this family musical.
“I’ve spent the past 20 years in full-time ministry. Coming back to the theatre to direct this production seems like the perfect fit. I’m able to combine my love of theatre with my heart for ministry to bring the Jesus story to a new group of folks.
“The show demonstrates how important it is for us to be aware and recognize that the people around us may or may not be in the mood for holiday cheer. The cast and crew have come together to bring this show to life because they all believe in its message.”
With the subtitle “A Story of Hope and Forgiveness,” the play is written by Broken Arrow residents Steve Cowen and Scott Brister and presented by Next Door Escapes and Entertainment. Other sponsors include Owasso Fence, First National Bank and Trust Company of Broken Arrow and Flippo Insurance.
