A Christmas Collection:
Songs & Stories of the Season

December 9 - 10, 2022
Directed by Anita Rowland

The Village Playbox invites you to attend A Christmas Collection: Songs & Stories of the Season on Friday, December 9, and Saturday, December 10. The program begins when the doors open at 7:00. Everyone can enjoy a complimentary cup of hot chocolate while children work on a Christmas craft (there’s one for adults, too). Next, you will step into the past as you become the studio audience for a vintage television variety show. Your host will welcome talented ensembles and soloists to sing Christmas music in both traditional and contemporary ways. Other guests will reflect on Christmas traditions and read poems, essays, and excerpts from Christmas stories. There will even be video clips from a couple of beloved children’s programs. Santa Claus is planning to stop by with a special gift for the kids. Our program will close with music for everyone to sing. Tickets will be available at the door and cost $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12.
SPECIAL NOTE: Many people in our own communities are food challenged. Resources in local food banks are dwindling. We ask that you show your Christmas spirit in a tangible way by bringing a canned or non-perishable food item to our program

May 5 - 20, 2023
Directed by John Blackwell


Set in the fictional northwestern Louisiana parish of Chinquapin, the play opens at Truvy's in-home beauty parlor where a group of women regularly gather. They discuss Shelby's upcoming wedding to her fiancé, Jackson. The plot covers events over the next three years relating to Shelby's Type 1 diabetes, and with how the women cope with their conflicts, while remaining friends: Shelby's decision to have a child despite jeopardizing her health, Clairee's friendship with the curmudgeon Ouiser; Annelle's transformation from a shy, anxious newcomer in town to a good-time girl then repentant revival-tent Christian; and Truvy's relationships with the men in her family. Although the main storyline involves Shelby, her mother M'Lynn, and Shelby's medical battles, the group's underlying friendship is prominent throughout the drama
