What if the three wise men weren’t really all that wise? What if they were just three ordinary guys, avoiding conflicts at home, who happened upon the greatest story ever told?

Set the entire story in modern day America, sprinkle in a little redneck humor, and you have the smash A Good Old Fashioned Redneck Country Christmas Bill, Dave, and Jimmy have had it with their women! Even though it’s Christmas Eve, and tradition dictates they should be home, drinking hot cocoa and singing carols, the boys decide to high-tail it into the mountains for a little hunting and a lot of beer.

This protest does nothing to improve the mood of the women back in town. Lou runs Lou’s Diner. She and Bill and have been trying (unsuccessfully) to have a baby. Barbie Jo, Lou’s head waitress, is married to Dave, and they have kids, but Dave’s not interested in family this year. Darlene, the most beautiful girl in three counties is dating Jimmy, but while she’s ready to settle down, Jimmy can’t stand the idea of “committment”. It’s gonna take a Christmas miracle to get these redneck families back together! Thank God one just came to town!

Theatre Suburbia was pleased to produce this awesome scrip as our Christmas show in November and December of 2010, directed by Judy Reeves.  (http://www.theatresuburbia.org/show.php?show=353) We're a small theatre, almost in the round, seating 100 patrons. We had a great time producing, the set was something to remember, but most of all the script was just perfect for our audience and loved by all. Highly recommend this very memorable, heartwarming play.

Our small town community theatre group produced the play in our local community hall. Over the course of 8 shows we had upwards of 1,500 people view the show and received rave reviews. We used our rotating stage to change the cafe into the cattle shed in the mountains, this blew away our guests. Great script and so much fun to produce.
