Sanders Family Christmas
by Connie Ray, conceived by Alan Bailey, musical arrangements by Gary Fagin and John Foley
November 15 – December 22
It’s Christmas Eve, 1941, and America is going to war. But in North Carolina’s little Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, the boisterous Sanders Family Singers band together with Reverend Mervin Oglethorpe to buoy the congregation’s spirit. Conceived by a Commonweal favorite, director Alan Bailey, and brimming with warmth, hilarity and foot-stomping bluegrass music, Sanders Family Christmas will have your toes tapping and your heart singing.
