Christmas Dessert Theater Presented at Crossroads Ministries Looking for something fun and exciting for during this holiday season? Take a break from the mall and come relax with us at the Crossroads Ministries Christmas Dessert Theater. Join us for "I'll Be Home for Christmas," a dramatic musical about a family and their community during the Golden Days of Radio. The play's humor and high spirits are balanced against the fear and doubt that was present in 1941, where people faced an unknown future, much as we do today. People of all ages will enjoy the jazzy sounds of the Big Band Era. You’ll see and hear re-enactments of live radio shows such as “The Lone Ranger,” “Fibber McGee and Molly,” and “The Shadow.” After the musical, you will enjoy a dessert bar that will be sure to top off the evening. The Christmas Dessert Theater will
be held at Crossroads Ministries December 9, 10, and 11. It begins at 7 p.m. on Friday and 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are only $6 and they include dessert.
