Butterfinger's Angel

This play is by William Gibson and believe it or not the full title of the play is "The Butterfingers Angel, Mary & Joseph, Herod the Nut & the Slaughter of 12 Hit Carols in a Pear Tree".

The task of convincing her falls to the Butterfinger angel and boy, it's no easy task. The play is a true Christmas comedy with lots of laughter and good-natured humor. The Butterfinger angel's character is truly unique. The play end on an introspective note that asserts to people the true meaning of Christmas.



Christmas Presence

Heard of Christmas presents that talk? Well, here is a play about them. Each present is of the view that he or she is the best present in the world that anybody could give or receive. The comedy is rather heart warming with its final message about how Jesus is the best present ever and none of them can ever compete with him. This play - even though the concept sounds "child-like" (dressing up as presents)- is for older teens and/or adults and really has a good lesson about Jesus being the true meaning of Christmas. As the Christmas scripture is read, you may want to bring in a nativity scene to ensure participation by the smaller children.
