Dave and Barbie-Jo are just two of the delightful characters the audience will meet at the Quadra Community Centre during Theatre Quadra’s run of A Good Old Fashioned Redneck Country Christmas Dec. 16-18.

Christmas fun from Theatre Quadra

What if the three wise men weren’t really all that wise?

What if the three wise men weren’t really all that wise?  What if they were just three ordinary guys, avoiding conflicts at home, who happened upon the greatest story ever told?

Set the entire story in a modern day small town, sprinkle in a little redneck humour, and have the smash hit, A Good Old Fashioned Redneck Country Christmas.

Bill, Dave and Jimmy have had it with their women! Even though it’s Christmas Eve, and tradition dictates they should be home, drinking hot cocoa and singing carols, the boys decide to high-tail it into the mountains for a little hunting and a lot of beer.

This protest does nothing to improve the mood of the women back in town. Lou runs Lou’s Diner. She and Bill have been trying (unsuccessfully) to have a baby.

Barbie Jo, Lou’s head waitress, is married to Dave and they have kids, but Dave’s not interested in family this year.

Darlene, the most beautiful girl in three counties, is dating Jimmy, but while she’s ready to settle down, Jimmy can’t stand the idea of commitment.

It’s going to take a Christmas miracle to get these redneck families back together again.

As it turns out… miracles do happen!

Performances of A Good Old Fashioned Redneck Country Christmas run at the Quadra Community Centre,  Dec. 16 and 17 at 7:30 p.m. (doors open 6:30) along with a matinee performance on Dec. 18  at 2 p.m. (doors open at 1 p.m.).

Tickets will be available at the door and are $12 for adults, $8 for seniors and students and $4 for children 12 and under.
