About This Show

The Butterfingers Angel, Mary & Joseph, Herod the Nut, & the Slaughter of 12 Hit Carols in a Pear Tree, A Christmas Entertainment, by William Gibson, is a retelling of the Christmas story complete with a tenacious Mary, a bumbling Angel, a malevolent one, and precocious stable animals sure to melt the heart this holiday season.

Mary is young, headstrong, and determined to escape her stuck-in-the-mud life. Babies and marriage are not in her plans until a clumsy Angel shows up and makes a certain announcement. With a mission to accomplish, Mary rounds up Joseph and the three set off on the amazing journey to Bethlehem. Unknowingly outwitting the wicked Man in Grey, a.k.a Herod, the trio discovers that love is truly the answer. Filled with a dozen favorite carols and the joyous spirit of the holiday, Butterfingers Angel is the perfect celebration for the season.
