Christmas in Paradise is back for the 2019 holiday season. Grab the reins, sit back, and hold on for a ride you won’t soon forget. | November 19 - December 28, 2019

Christmas Day approaches and uncertainty reigns in the beautiful town of Paradise. As the newest owners of a thrift store, Matthew and Mary are facing seemingly insurmountable challenges, including a parent with dementia, a sister with control issues, and some very nosy and noisy neighbors – all of which makes for a few “bumps in the road” during the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas in Paradise is an inspirational and uplifting journey that reveals unexpected treasures... in the most unlikely of places.

Christmas in Paradise is the newest musical from the same creative team that brought you Stolen, The Confession, Half-Stitched, Josiah for President, Our Christmas Dinner, and The Home Game. 


The author of the novel and play, Josiah for President, Martha Bolton was a staff writer for Bob Hope for more than 15 years and has written for other artists such as Mark Lowry, Jeff Allen and Phyllis Diller.

With over 40 books to her name, she's also written for Focus on the Family as well as parody lyrics of songs from Michael W. Smith, Steven Curtis Chapman and Amy Grant.

Martha began her comedy-writing career as a church secretary. "I saw a lot of comedy in the church," Martha says with a laugh. "I used to perform a Friar's Club-type roast on the pastor, deacon, or any other church staff member who was celebrating a special occasion. I had to change churches a lot." And thus began Martha's writing career. She's been going strong ever since.
