Christmas-Photo2Squabbling sisters, a surly Santa an unexpected visit from Elvis make for holiday hilarity! Local theatre company Coastal Stage Productions, CSP, who is quickly gaining a reputation for quality short-run theatre projects, returns for the holiday season to area venues with the hilarious holiday comedy Christmas Belles, from the creators of The Dixie Swim Club.

It’s Christmas-time in the small town of Fayro and the Futrelle Sisters – Frankie, Twink and Honey Raye – are 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 is passing a kidney stone. And, the Christmas-Photo1entire cast is dropping like flies due to food poisoning from the Band Boosters’ Pancake Supper. All hope for a successful program seems lost, even with an Elvis impersonator at the manger. But, the feuding sisters find a way to pull together in order to present a Christmas program never to be forgotten. This family friendly journey through a misadventure-filled Christmas Eve is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face and real joy to your world!

This colorful cast of players is a wonderful combination of very talented Beaufort County actors including: Daniel Bittick, Donna Capps, J.T. Chin, Rebecca Donaldson, Robyn Erickson, Dave Falls, Christine Grefe, Lyndsay Malphrus, Carol Miller, Kay Owen and Rodney Vaughn.
