It’s going to be a country Christmas at Pleasant Hill United Pentecostal Church.

The church will present its dinner theater featuring the children’s musical “It All Happened in the Country” beginning at 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

The nights will begin with a home cooked meal at 6 p.m. followed by dinner at 7.

“People can come and have a meal and then see the play or they can just come to the play, whichever way they would like,” said Pat Grossell, Sunday school director at Pleasant Hill and director of the play.

Anyone who wishes to be a part of the meal is asked to make reservations to make sure there will be enough room in the fellowship hall, Grossell said.

“It All Happened in the Country” is the musical story of two city kids who find themselves stuck in the country at Granny’s house after their car breaks down.

“Their city ways and the country ways of Granny and Uncle Yule and the country cousin just don’t mix really well,” Grossell said. “What happens is the city kids learn the meaning of Christmas through song and through Uncle Yule and Granny.”

The production will feature older members of the church playing the roles of Granny and Uncle Yule, with other roles by teenagers and the kids choir kids from first to fifth grades.

Grossell said church members have been working on the play since October. She gives special credit to Kristen Whitley, the director of the children’s choir.

“She has worked really hard in getting the kids prepared and working with them,” Grossell said.

Admission is $6 for kids and $7 for adults.
