Come on back to a simpler time and visit the folks at Juneberry this Christmas! Things seem peaceful at the courthouse on Christmas Eve, and Sheriff Randy Baylor thinks that is mighty fine. His deputy, Arnie Nife, couldn't disagree more. Arnie is tired of the lack of action happening in the small town. Even locking up Curtis, the town drunk, isn't exactly cheering him up. When a few robberies start getting reported and a couple of carolers go missing while singing for the town, boring Juneberry gets real busy, real fast! Come join the citizens of Juneberry, whom you might know – Aunt Pea, Hopie, Homer Nile, Reverend Lloyd, Oober the taxi cab driver, Betty Lou, and more – for a hilarious Christmas Eve filled with small town antics, the true meaning of Christmas, and plenty of laughs! Running time: About 80 minutes.

Behind The Scenes

PLAYWRIGHT ANDREW M. FRODAHL TALKS ABOUT HIS PLAY

CHRISTMAS IN JUNEBERRY

 

Q: WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO WRITE THIS PLAY?

I have very fond memories of growing up watching reruns of the Andy Griffith show with my brothers and Dad.

 

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PART OR LINE IN THE PLAY?

When Arnie is trying to show off his quick draw skills. Why? It's comic gold.

 

Q: WHERE DID THE CHARACTERS COME FROM?

The characters are parodies of the Andy Griffith show. One of the greatest shows in Television history. Are they based on people you know? I think we all have run into an Arnie Nife, Aunt Pea, Homer Nile, and a Curtis in our lives. Probably an Oober or two.

 

Q: WHAT DID YOU TRY TO ACHIEVE WITH THIS PLAY?

The true meaning for Christmas can quickly get lost in all the fancy lights, decorations, and festivities that we can easily forget what it is all about. God became a man to save us all. It's the greatest gift!

 

Q: DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING ELSE YOU'D LIKE TO ADD?

The play is a parody of the Andy Griffith show. The more you can imitate the idiosyncrasies of these characters, the better it will sell. However, with that said, the play is written to stand on its own without anyone ever seeing the Andy Griffith show.
