Welcome to our show: My name is Ron George, and I am the executive producer. This year we are celebrating the 16th anniversary of “Christmas in My Home Town.” From its debut, our show has become a wonderful holiday tradition. A variety show fashioned after the holiday specials of TV’s early days, when their families joined stars in a cozy front room setting. “We are trying to re-create what we remember from the Andy Williams Christmas programs, that feeling of being invited into their home for a warm and cheerful holiday gathering.”
Joining me onstage is Emily Jessen, Zach & Aaron George, Megan Hicks, Jaina Benton, Jack and Kelsey Hobbs, The Will C Wood Sylvan Singers and The Tintanabulus Hand Bell Choir, Tom Davies, Christina Jacklin and The Dixon Dancers.
Planning for the show starts in July, and from then until showtime, we are building sets, learning songs, adding new props to the show, and always trying to outdo our last performance. From the beginning, Christmas in My Home Town has been a family affair. My wife Sharron collects goodies all year to makes up all the Baskets that we raffle off as part of our fundraising efforts. Our son Doug and his wife Julie, along with our daughter Rhonda and her husband George, help with setting up and tearing down the set and helping their mother prepare the food to feed the cast members.
Our grandchildren Zach, Aaron, Megan, and our adopted granddaughter Emily Jessen not only perform in every show, but they also work side by side with us to bring the best performance possible to our community. From the very first year, Christmas in My Home Town has been a labor of love for the entire cast and crew. Helping to keep the school music programs in place for future generations is our passion!!!
