River & Rail Theatre Company: The Unusual Tale of Mary & Joseph's Baby
Knoxville's Favorite Christmas Tradition! An original folk-rock Christmas musical by Don Chaffer (of Waterdeep) and Chris Cragin-Day.
This new musical dares to take the classic story at its word. There really is a pregnant virgin. There really are shepherds and angels and foreign dignitaries (a.k.a. wise men). There's a ratty extra room/stable at the inn, and a maniacal, bloodthirsty dictator, whose menacing shadow hangs over everything.
And obviously, it’s a comedy. Seriously. It is.
The Unusual Tale of Mary & Joseph’s Baby surprises both virgin-believing and non-virgin-believing audiences alike bringing a new sense of wonder and imagination to the age-old story. For more info, visit www.unusualtale.com.
Note to Parents: The musical is fun for the whole family! We recommend the show to children ages 7 and up. We are parents ourselves and would rate the show PG: for mild language. Translation: there are 2-3 mildly "adult" words in the show.
Performances are Nov 21-25 and Dec 12-23. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-unusual-tale-of-mary-josephs-baby-2018-tickets-51652553177
Performed at The Swift Building, 119 W. 5th Avenue, Knoxville, TN 37917. River & Rail Theatre Company information: 865-407-0727, www.riverandrailtheatre.com
Flying Anvil Theatre: The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical
November 16 through December 22, Wed through Sat at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 2 pm.
One pay-what-you-can preview on November 15 at 7:30 pm.
By Betsy Kelso and David Nehls
They’re baaack! It’s holiday time down in Armadillo Acres (North Florida’s premier mobile-living community), and everyone’s filled with warmth and beer. But when a freak bout of amnesia strikes the trailer park Scrooge, neighborly love is put to the test. Be on hand as Betty, Lin, and Pickles jingle all the way with some new neighbors in an all-new, all-trailer-park musical! You don’t have to have seen our 2017 summer production of The Great American Trailer Park Musical to enjoy this sequel, but if you did, you know it’s a cat-fightin’, sun-worshippin’, chair-throwin’ good time...but with tinsel and Keg Nog! Definitely for mature audiences. *The show has some mature language & may not be suitable for children. Parental discretion advised.
TICKET PRICES: Wed, Thu, & Sun $22 ($16 for students); Fri & Sat $24 ($16 for students)
