    Sunday, December 9 @ 4:00 p.m.
    Place: Student Ministry Center Main Cost: Free! Come enjoy this free performance and celebrate the Christmas season with:
    “Christmas with Little Women”- The beloved characters of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel, Little Women return again in this charming portrait of two holiday seasons. The initial holiday is marred by the receipt of a telegram from the War Department. Father, while serving as a chaplain in the Union Army, lies ill in Washington. Mrs. March must leave to care for him.

    Second portrait,The Christmas Dress; is a quaint comedy about two sisters who must share one party dress between them. This becomes more of a problem as Christmas party time approaches. The manner in which the Yuletide season touches their lives and the transformation of the old party dress into a very special Christmas dress creates a mixture of humor and sentiment that perfectly expresses the spirit of this special time of year.

    Attendees are not charged for tickets, however the class would like to accept any cash donations for the local animal shelters.
