With Fluffy's fellow tree friends, Hannah and Tarry, Fluffy embarks on a heartwarming holiday adventure to show the world what real trees can do.

The company of Fluffy the Pine includes  Victoria Chen, Beatriz Coronel, Grant Dombach, Tiffani Grace, Joe Guccione, Sarah Hogewood, Adrienne Ianniciello, Jacqueline Keeley, Danielle Koenig, Nikki Neuberger, Eliana Rubin, Nikki Sorrentino, and Myriam Zamy.

The Jo-Lynn Butterfly Country Hour of Sunshine Christmas Special

Wednesday December 13 at 8pm

Thursday December 14 at 8pm

Friday December 15 at 9pm

Saturday December 16 at 9pm

Sunday December 17 at 3pm & 8pm

The campy, corn-fed original musical comedy, The Jo-Lynn Butterfly Country Hour Of Sunshine Christmas Special returns to Wild Project this December.

After leaving audiences in stitches last year, the ladies of the Jo-Lynn Butterfly Country Hour of Sunshine are back for more songs, sass and mayhem this December. The year is 1974, and semi-famous honky-tonk country music sensation, Lannie Jo-Lynn Butterfly, played by Angela Di Carlo, (ADD Cabaret, The Mad World of Miss Hathaway) is fresh out of the sanitarium, and has adopted a new self-help doctrine that is suspiciously “cult-ish”. Along for the ride is her cranky mother, Hazel Jo played by Amber Martin, (Bette Bath House, Cassette Roulette) simpleminded daughter, Bonnie Jo, (Louisa Bradshaw) precocious granddaughter, Rita (Kurt Phelan) and a hearty helping of assorted hilarious hillbillies and ex-husbands bringing plenty of laughs, music, merriment and baggage. A whole lot of crazy never sounded so good! 

The company includes Louisa Bradshaw, Nora Burns, Angela Di Carlo, Pailo Heitz, David Ilku, Amber Martin, Kurt Phelan, Fred Sauter, Gia Mele, and Edie Nightcrawler. Adam Pivirotto and Andrew Kasper serve as stage managers.

The Jo-Lynn Butterfly Country Hour Of Sunshine Christmas Special features a book, music and lyrics by Angela Di Carlo and is directed by Carlton Stovall. Music direction is by Kyle Forester. Edie Nightcrawler serves as choreographer. Set and prop design is by Steven Hammell, lighting design is by kia rogers, costume design is by Todd Thomas, with wigs by Perfidia.

Tickets for all three productions are on sale now at www.thewildproject.org.
