See and listen to "The Forgotten Carols," a play about the Christmas season filled with holiday music.
November 20, 2013JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – The Southeastern tour of "The Forgotten Carols" will make one of its final stops at Johns Creek United Methodist Church Friday, Dec. 13 at 7:30 p.m. The show was last performed at the church in 2011.
Written by Michael McLean, this magical family musical has played in West Coast theaters for more than 20 Christmas seasons. This year marks the third annual Southeastern tour produced by Theos Theatricals.
The producing team includes Emmy Award-winning television producer Michael Young, who has just relocated from Los Angeles to Johns Creek, and Greg Smith, a minister and pastoral counselor from Auburn, Ala.
"'The Forgotten Carols' made Christmas 2011 more meaningful and exciting than any Christmas I can remember since becoming a pastor," said the Rev D.B. Shelnutt Jr., senior pastor of the church. "The message, the music and the acting were superb."
"The Forgotten Carols" features professional actors joined on stage by the local church choir. This special event shares the true meaning of Christmas through the heart-warming story of Constance, a rigid nurse, and John, her very unusual patient.
With warmth and kindness, John takes Constance on a journey through the untold carols of Christmases past, eventually breaking through her iron-clad exterior and guiding the young nurse to the Christmas carol waiting to be sung inside her own heart.
Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for groups of 10 or more and $12 for students. For ticket information, visit http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/484894 or call the church office. Like the show on Facebook at Theos Theatricals.
