Christmas in Comfort
Prices may vary by performance.
Mona Malone, famous for her role as the “scream queen” in Hollywood horror flicks, must do 200 hours of community service. A judge is persuaded by Mona’s attorney to let her spend them directing the annual Christmas play in his tiny hometown of Comfort. When Mona and her pre-conceived ideas about small towns meet the wacky residents of Comfort and their pre-conceived ideas, sparks fly. The residents know exactly how they want to do the play — after all, they’ve been doing it exactly the same way for 20 years! But Mona wants big changes. As the work progresses, however, it’s the town that changes Mona. She begins to make peace with her life, her goals, and the faith she had left behind. Along the way, Mona’s assistant finds her voice and the local drama teacher remembers her own lesson of what theater can give to the actors and the audience — even in a small town far from Broadway. Laughter and the traditional music of Christmas fill the stage with warmth as the people of Comfort help Mona learn a big lesson about fame, faith, and the fact that a long time ago in Bethlehem, a child was born for everyone — including the famous Mona Malone.
