Chaos and comedy reign supreme in the premiere of Angels in Disguise

It’s Christmas Eve, and the Freckletons are about to celebrate their tenth Christmas in southern California. A relatively routine holiday celebration turns into utter chaos in this modern, comedic, and family-friendly spin on “the Christmas play,” weaving in social media, romance, the solstice, Hanukkah, and the need to put our differences aside to fully appreciate the gift of the holiday season.

Warren Doody, playwright and part-time Flagstaff resident, wrote the script which was unanimously selected by Theatrikos’s Artistic Committee to be the 2019 holiday offering.

Audiences will be the first to experience the premiere of this play. We all can relate to the Freckletons or their estranged next door neighbors, the Briks. Holiday time with family comes loaded with expectations, unruliness and, if we’re lucky, tenderness. Despite the stress and turmoil, most of us still look toward the next family holiday with renewed optimism.

“Angels in Disguise features a delightful bunch of characters who invite us into their home and into the chaos of their family holidays,” said director Virginia Brown. “We get to feel better about our zany families in comparison.”

The cast includes Dean Barker, Becky Daggett, Amanda DeLano, Ava Haines, Josie Hebestreit, Angela Keith, Dave Kelly, Mandy Meilbeck, Nate Piper, Austin Rae, Michael Rulon, Tony Sutera, and Daniel Wilson.
