BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!
adapted and directed
by Nathan Jeffrey
Breathtaking yet humorous, awe-inspiring yet familiar, experience the most famous story of all in The Birth. Using humor and dramatic storytelling, two actors portray a myriad of characters to tell the story of the most extraordinary events in history: those surrounding Jesus’ birth. With a solid, Bible-based narrative and a historical view going all the way back to the creation—plus an imaginative sense of humor and a musical touch—The Birth is perfect for parties, banquets and church services all year long. Share with your audience the story of the most all-consuming and dangerous love the world has ever known.
“It was absolutely fabulous. I loved the way actual scripture came to life through the characters. One would be hard pressed to tell it any better. That people were impacted showed in their response — a standing ovation for both performances!” ~ Mary Johnson, Port Ludlow Community Church
“Superb…impacting…unforgettable.” ~ Barry Brenden, Highlands Community Church
White Elephant – IMPROV-ing Your Christmas Spirit
created and directed
by Solomon Davis
Everyone loves a white elephant gift exchange—unless they’re a regular old Scrooge. But even the most miserly of humbugs can be coaxed from their shell when the competition heats up! In The White Elephant, Taproot’s most talented improv actors take their Christmas curmudgeon on a journey of hilarious gift-giving proportions as they try to improv(e) his holiday spirit—with some help from the audience. What Christmas party is complete without a white elephant gift exchange? With improv games and a hilarious storyline tying it all together, The White Elephant gives your Christmas party a fun twist!
“People loved it. I loved it!” ~ Mark Wilks, First Baptist Church, Chehalis
No gift-giving actually takes place—all exchanges are part of the story, though a few audience members may bring home some funny prizes!
Christmas in Flight
by Anne Kennedy Brady
directed by Nathan Jeffrey
There’s no place like home for the holidays… or so they say. But not even snow and mistletoe can make Veronica face her family this year. Keeping the reason a secret from her husband, Veronica convinces him to book a last-minute vacation to Los Angeles, just the two of them. But amidst the stress of a delayed Christmas Eve flight, Alan uncovers the truth of why his wife is running away this Christmas. While conversing with travelers who have their own stories of family, faith and forgiveness, Alan tries to soften his wife’s calloused heart and get her to give her own family a chance.
“This was a superb play and performance!! We always are happy with Taproot and what you bring to our event, but this year exceeded our expectations … Great job, one and all!!” ~ Cindy Sanders, Refuge Church
