Conner Robertson, Bob Jordan, Stacie Duvall, Ashley Heflin and Trinity Boyd star in the community theatre’s Christmas production “Fruitcakes.”
The Fauquier Community Theatre presents its Christmas play, “Fruitcakes”, opening this weekend.

The play runs for three weekends from Friday, Dec. 1 to Sunday, Dec. 17.

The comical, family-friendly Christmas play takes place in a small Georgia town called McCord’s Ferry.

The stereotypical “small town, USA” is similar to a fruitcake: mostly sweet with plenty of nuts.

The heart-warming tale highlights the true spirit of Christmas and forgiveness when a runaway steals a fruitcake in the close-knit town.

Director Lucia Hanover previously worked on shows in New York including off Broadway and off-off Broadway.

“Fruitcake’s meaning is really two-fold,” Ms. Hanover said. “There is the underlying story about redemption and driving home the message of kindness and honesty at all costs.

“Then, there is the message of forgiveness. Not just forgiving a wrong done, but being able to forgive ourselves and others — how freeing forgiveness is and the strength it brings in uniting people in kindness and love.”

Written by Julian Wiles, and produced by Amanda Gibson.

Performances will take place at the community theatre at Vint Hill, 4225 Aiken Drive, Warrenton.

Shows start at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays.

Adults, $17; children ages 3 to 18 and seniors 60+, $15.

Tickets available online or by calling 540-349-8760.
