Fruitcakes presented by Company of Rowlett Performers

Saturday, December 9, 2023

Company of Rowlett Performers presents Fruitcakes by Julian Wiles from December 8-16. Shows on December 8, 9, and 15 begin at 7:30 and December 10 and 16 matinees begin at 2:00, all at the Plaza Theatre in Downtown Garland.

Description: Mix together a batch of fruitcakes, three dozen Christmas trees, 10,000 outdoor Christmas lights, a chicken pox epidemic, two southern spinsters, an estranged old man, a lost cat named Tutti Frutti and a Christmas hog named Buster and you've got the recipe for a fun-filled and touching evening of holiday cheer. Into this world comes Jamie, a kid who has run away from home and come as far as his money will take him. At first, he thinks this town's inhabitants are "nuttier than fruitcakes," but soon he comes to admire, appreciate and adore this nutty little town. A moving story of alienation, understanding and reconciliation, FrUiTCaKeS provides audiences with a heaping he-lping of holiday warmth and Christmas cheer.
