The Franklin County High School Drama Department will host its annual interactive dinner theater Saturday-Sunday, Dec. 2-3, on the first floor of the Third Place Event Center, Brookville, reports drama director Adam Hofer.

The show takes place at the business Christmas party for Neal Knacker and his family's auto dealership, Knacker Auto Complex. In lieu of a Christmas bonus, Knacker has invited his employees and their guests to his family home to celebrate with an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party and Contest. What his employees don't know is that immediately after the party, the Knackers are leaving for Hawaii on their last family vacation before their kids go away to college and law school.

Much to everyone's surprise, Neal's black sheep brother, Nick, crashes the event with the family matriarch, cranky old Aunt Nattie – the inspiration and contributor of most of the sweaters for the Ugly Christmas Sweater party.

Tickets are still on sale through Nov. 30 or until all tickets are sold. They are $22 and include a full Italian-style meal and the show. Attendees are encouraged to participate in the Ugly Sweater Contest. Saturday's show begins at 6 p.m. and Sunday's at 5 p.m.

For more information or to order tickets, please call FCHS at 765-647-4101, Ext. 1745, and leave your name, phone number, amount of tickets desired and the day you would like to attend. Persons can also email Hofer at ahofer@fccsc.k12.in.us.
