Set in 1935 high in the Smokey Mountains of North Carolina, this dynamic and easy to produce family show for the holiday season is one audiences flock to see year after year. Papa Jenkins, known throughout the hills as "Grins," is a man whose guitar playing and singing is known far and wide. When heartbreak devastates his family, his five irrepressible children prepare Christmas morning surprises that rescue their beloved Papa from the depths of despair. It is a magical tale of family love that is as heartwarming as it is funny.
"Like childhood Christmas mornings, the first taste of ice cream, family photo albums, or the sound of somebody saying 'I love you,' Papa's Angels is one of the rare things in life with the warming ability to find its way into human hearts of all" - Variety
