ACT Presents: Doublewide Texas Christmas

Artists Collaborative Theatre presents: Doublewide Texas Christmas, scheduled from November 23 to December 16, 2018, in Elkhorn City, KY.

About Doublewide Texas Christmas

Twenty years ago, Pastor Paul’s church was nothing more than a modest storefront. Now he presides over a congregation of thousands, with classrooms for Sunday School, a coffee shop in the lobby, and a baptismal font as big as a swimming pool. Today should be a day of celebration, but Paul is about to preach a sermon that will shake the foundations of his church’s belief system. A big-little play about faith in America—and the trouble with changing your mind.

ACT Presents: Adventures of Peter Rabbit Jr.

Artists Collaborative Theatre presents: Adventures of Peter Rabbit Jr., scheduled from October 11 to 21, 2018, in Elkhorn City, KY.

About Adventures of Peter Rabbit Jr.

Five delightful tales including Peter Rabbit, The Tailor of Gloucester and Jemima Puddle-Duck are interwoven with the fascinating life of their creator, Beatrix Potter, in this enchanting, enlightening entertainment for all ages. The play moves back and forth from the fantasy world she created to the intriguing story of Beatrix Potter herself, who overcame her lonely, strict childhood—in which her writings and drawings were discouraged in the male-oriented Victorian era—to become the most widely read children’s author of all times. We also meet Beatrix’s governess, Annie (who narrates the play), and Annie’s children for whom many of the stories were originally written. Both entertaining and educational, this play is a must for any child—or adult—who has ever fallen under the magical spell of Peter Rabbit and his many friends.
