Yuletide joy with holiday family fun…Texas style!

December in the Lone Star State – the holiday treat Christmas Belles comes to
Austin for The City Theatre Company’s 2017 holiday season. When a church
Christmas program spins hilariously out of control, there will be plenty of laughs in
the soon to be classic southern comedy, authored by America’s favorite writing
trio Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten.

Santa Claus is coming to town. Or is he?

It’s Christmas-time in Fayro, Texas, and CTC welcomes back the Futrelle sisters.
Frankie, Twink, and Honey Raye are not exactly in a festive mood. Frankie is
overdue with her second set of twins, Twink is bitter about a recent jilting which
finds her behind bars, and Honey Raye is trying to keep the Tabernacle of the
Lamb’s Christmas Pageant from spiraling out of control. Things are not looking
promising: the former director is ruthless in her attempts to take over the show,
the celebrity Santa is passing a kidney stone, the cast is dropping like flies to
food poisoning from the pancake supper, and a long-kept family secret so
desperately needs to be revealed.  And on top of everything, the pageant will be
shown live on cable access television for the first time ever. In true Futrelle
fashion, the feuding sisters pull together to present a Christmas program the
citizens of Fayro will never forget. Christmas Belles will bring joy to your world!

Celebrating over 4,800 productions and more than 35,000 performances!














Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten, collectively known as JONES
HOPE WOOTEN, enjoy the reputation of being three of the most popular and
widely-produced playwrights in the United States. They specialize in writing laugh-
out-loud comedies and creating vivid strong roles for women. Because of their
commitment to and support of local theatres across the nation, they've built a
following with legions of loyal fans and have been dubbed "America's
Playwrights." Between them, they've written classic television, including The
Golden Girls, hit movies, Off Broadway comedies, and nationally produced stage
shows. Thousands of productions - including their perennially-popular The Dixie
Swim Club, Dearly Beloved, Christmas Belles, The Red Velvet Cake War, and
many more - have entertained millions of theatre-goers across America, as well
as in Canada, Denmark, Japan, Netherlands, Australia, Germany, Mexico,
England, and Scotland. All three were born and raised in the south and write
about the south they know best.

CTC is excited to welcome first-time guest director Jessica McMichael.
The cast will feature Cassidy Timms, Giselle Munoz, Beau Paul,
R. Michael Clinkscales, Ty Wylie, Robyn Gammill, Nikki Bora, Dawn Erin,
Christina Manley, Danielle Bondurant, and Brent Rose.
