The Players at Barker present a very special play for the holidays. The Butterfingers Angel, Mary and Joseph, Herod the Nut and the Slaughter of 12 Hit Carols in a Pear Tree, by William Gibson, puts a unique spin on the Nativity story that is sure to warm the heart. The play’s vivid assortment of characters features, among others, a headstrong Mary, an avuncular, jealous Joseph, an insecure, runny-nosed Angel, a maniacal Herod, a mysterious Man in Grey, a petulant Tree, several talking animals and three directionally-challenged ‘wise’ men.
Our performances start at 7:30pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and at 2:00pm on Sundays. Please arrive no later than 10 minutes prior to curtain time.
Member Tickets are free; Guest Tickets are $25 for Adults, $15 for Students.
