Sander's Family Christmas

They're back! The Sanctified Sanders Family Singers return to the Little Opry Theatre inside Branson's IMAX Entertainment Complex to celebrate the holidays with faith, family and old-fashioned fun in SANDERS FAMILY CHRISTMAS. Evenings of laughter and music begin nightly at 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, throughout December.

It's Christmas Eve in 1941. The Depression is coming to a close, but 18 days after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the threat of war has just begun. Our SMOKE ON THE MOUNTAIN family has returned, about to say a bittersweet goodbye to their only son, who is shipping out with the Marine Corps. But before he goes, the Sanders Family Singers are heading up the annual Christmas celebration at Mount Pleasant Baptist Church. Reverend Mervin Oglethorpe (who works part-time at the local pickle plant) and the Sanders family attempt to raise the spirits of their faithful flock (the audience!) in a rousing, hilarious and heart-warming Christmas gospel sing-along of cherished holiday hymns and carols. There's Uncle Stanley; the family's patriarch, Burl, and his Scripture-quoting wife, Vera; the twins Dennis and Denise and their sister June (she doesn't sing, she signs).

Conceived by Alan Bailey and written by Connie Ray, SANDERS FAMILY CHRISTMAS is a nostalgic musical comedy that follows the saga of SMOKE ON THE MOUNTAIN, one of the most loved and most produced musicals worldwide.
