CAST to Present Sanders Family Christmas


Welcome the season with Community Actors Studio Theatre’s holiday production, Sanders Family Christmas, which is the sequel to the popular Smoke on the Mountain, presented by CAST several years ago. Even if you missed Smoke on the Mountain, you will still enjoy Sanders Family Christmas


Instead of the regular schedule for three weekends, CAST will present the play with gospel music December 4- 21 at McClellan Theatre following this schedule:


Thursday, December 4 at 8 p.m.

Saturday, December 5-6 NO TICKETS AVAILABLE

Thursday, Friday and Saturday, December 11-13 at 8 p.m.

Sunday, December 14 at 2:30 p.m.

Thursday, Friday and Saturday, December 18-20 at 8 p.m.

Saturday and Sunday, December 20 -21 at 2:30 p.m.



The musical is directed by Kimberley Dobbs with musical direction by Chris Cannon. 


The Sanders family returns to Mount Pleasant, N.C.,  home of the Mount Pleasant Pickle Factory. It's Christmas Eve, 1941. Reverend Oglethorpe has invited them to the Baptist Church to sing and witness, getting the congregation into the down home holiday spirit before the boys, including one of the Sanders' own, are shipped off to World War II. More than two dozen Christmas carols, many of them vintage hymns, and hilarious yuletide stories from the more or less devout Sanders family keep the audience laughing, clapping and singing along with bluegrass Christmas favorites. Richly entertaining, this wildly infections musical brings cheer to audiences of all ages.
