"Christmas from the Heart" is written and directed by Rosanne Pack and Kenney Workman of Milford. Dover resident Bob Frazier is music director and Christy Taylor of Harbeson is accompanist. The cast features 32 singers who range in age from 7 ½ to several decades older and who represent 11 area towns.
The holiday scene is set in a little town where residents come from different walks of life, families of differing backgrounds live side by side, kids are kids, and everyone loves to sing. Strangers are few, so many people, especially the teenagers, notice when someone new and different is suddenly in their midst. Who is this stranger who is seen just a few days before Christmas? And why doesn't he dress better?
