Rose Theater to Debut "Christmas Cheer"

Rose Theater to Debut "Christmas Cheer"

Rose Theatre will host the live show and debut of "Christmas Cheer" on Dec. 9.

According to The Backlot Players’ website, “Christmas Cheer” is a family drama, set in rural Wisconsin in the fall and winter of 1952.

In the play, The Chandler family has endured a move to the country from New York City with hope of better times to come as they restore the old family home.

While working two jobs and struggling to make ends meet, Ed Chandler comes up with an idea to start his own business. Whether the timing will be right and where the money will come from to start the venture are just two of the problems Ed will have to face.

With Christmas coming and with two children’s hopes on the line, what will the family have to endure?

"Christmas Cheer," is debuted by The Backlot Players and written and directed by Forsyth's Alan Ralph. The play is based on events from Ralph's childhood.
