THE STORY:
A church Christmas program spins hilariously out of control in this Southern farce about squabbling sisters, family secrets, a surly Santa, a vengeful sheep and a reluctant Elvis impersonator. It's Christmas-time in the small town of Fayro, Texas, and the Futrelle Sisters - Frankie, Twink and Honey Raye - are not exactly in a festive mood. A cranky Frankie is weeks overdue with her second set of twins. Twink, recently jilted and bitter about it, is in jail for inadvertently burning down half the town. And hot-flash-suffering Honey Raye is 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 27 productions, is ruthless in her attempts to take over the show. The celebrity guest Santa Claus - played by Frankie's long-suffering husband, Dub - is passing a kidney stone. One of the shepherds refused to watcher over hi flock by night without pulling his little red wagon behind him. And the entire case is dropping like flies due to food poisoning form the Band Boosters' Pancake Supper. And when Frankie lets slip a family secret that has been carefully guarded for decades, all hope for a successful Christmas program seems lost, even with an Elvis impersonator at the manger. But in true Futrelle fashion, the feuding sisters find a way to pull together in order to present a Christmas program the citizens of Fayro will never forget. Their hilarious holiday journey through a misadventure-filled Christmas Eve is guaranteed to bring joy to your world!

About the Center Stage Players
 
Westlake High Schools’ (WHS) Drama Club, now called “The Center Stage Players” consists of approximately 45 active students.  They are involved both on stage and behind the scenes.  Students contribute their technical expertise and ushering skills to other activities that take place in the Performing Arts Center.
 
Our purpose is to present a balanced program of plays which will enrich the program at WHS, to promote interest and ability in the theatre arts and aid in the cooperation and artistic integrity in theatre work.
 
This club is for any and all students who are interested in performing on stage or are interested in working one of the several technical crews.  We welcome members of other clubs, sports, and organization and pride ourselves on always having a diverse group of students participating in our shows.
 
Each year we present one play and one musical.
