Ring in the holiday with Sanders Family Christmas at the Kirby

This enchanting play follows the story of the Sanders family as they prepare for Christmas in a small North Carolina town: It’s the winter of 1941 in Mount Pleasant – the home of the Mount Pleasant Pickle Factory and the fun-loving Sanders Family Singers. With Christmas only a day away, young Dennis Sanders must face leaving his home and loved ones to join the war effort. Through the touching, heartfelt and truly hilarious support of his family, friends and community, Dennis learns the true meaning of “home.” Call (336) 597-1709 for tickets!
