Celebrate the Holidays in November and December with the hilarious Sanders Family in Sanders Family Christmas. 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.
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. The Sanders 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).
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.
