OVERVIEW

Find out what happens when Christmas plans are interrupted by surprise guests and a raging snow storm.

Expect the unexpected when strangers and kinfolk show up in the middle of both a snowstorm and a life storm, and no one is left the same. 

This not-so-traditional, sports-centered, laughter-filled Christmas dinner features favorite Christmas carols and original songs, too. Brought to you by the same team behind our other three hit musicals, The Confession, Half-Stitched, and Josiah for President, Dan Posthuma, Wally Nason, and Martha Bolton. 

ABOUT THE PLAYWRIGHT

The author of the novel and play, Josiah for President, Martha Bolton was a staff writer for Bob Hope for more than 15 years and has written for other artists such as Mark Lowery, Jeff Allen and Phyllis Diller.

With over 40 books to her name, she's also written for Focus on the Family as well as parody lyrics of songs from Michael W. Smith, Steven Curtis Chapman and Amy Grant.

Martha began her comedy-writing career as a church secretary. "I saw a lot of comedy in the church," Martha says with a laugh. "I used to perform a Friar's Club-type roast on the pastor, deacon, or any other church staff member who was celebrating a special occasion. I had to change churches a lot." And thus began Martha's writing career. She's been going strong ever since.

Reviews

See what other people are saying about Ohio Star Theater

Excellent facility with a great customer-oriented staff. Love the cloth hand towels in the restroom. Great performance with experienced entertainers. Very enjoyable.
– Marie, North Olmstead
The front-row seats were fabulous and the show far exceeded our expectations! The quality of the acting and singing was outstanding, and along with the scenery changes really made the show spectacular. It is excellent family entertainment and we will certainly spread the word here in Stark County.
– John, Canton
This was an incredible performance. The actors were so perfect for their parts and did a phenomenal job! Great talent! The venue was so perfect in the round. I would go to see it again!
– Marilyn, Tripadvisor
Saw Our Christmas Dinner. Exceeded expectations. The actors, music, story, script, were superb. I was deeply moved several times. This may have been my best theater experience ever. Well worth the price and the trip from Columbus. I will be back for the new show in the spring.
– Robert B., Tripadvisor
