The Merriest Christmas

December 4-6 / 11-13 / 18-20

This Christmas, come and visit LampLight Theatre in Downtown Kingsport, as it celebrates its 15th year anniversary. To mark the occasion, it will be presenting a revival of its heart-warming Victorian Christmas musical, “The Merriest Christmas.”

 

Presented in traditional Dickens’ fashion, three messengers bring tidings of joy and prophecy to this lonely old man. Written and directed by Billy Wayne Arrington, the story reveals the true meaning of Christmas as messengers take Crump on an amazing journey to the birth, crucifixion, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Billy Wayne believes that, “Because of this pandemic, people are experiencing great loss and loneliness, just like the character of Bartimus Crump. But through the kind gestures of a child, Bartimus is able to find hope. We are living in a hurting world, and this production is a beautiful example of how it is crucial that we reach out to offer hope and compassion to those that feel lost and forgotten.”
