Join us for Fireside FellowshipA Theatrical Christmas Celebration, a virtual presentation of new, short plays inspired by scriptures about Christmas and heartwarming songs of the season performed by stars from the worlds of Broadway and Opera.

Fireside Fellowship is free and available online to everyone Dec. 12 through Jan. 2 at

The presentation includes new works FPA commissioned from four exceptional playwrights, each 6 to 9-minute play inspired by Christmas scripture. The stories range from a hilarious take on a census worker who encounters Joseph and a very pregnant Mary, to a skeptical professor who learns that miracles can come in small packages, to an extra ordinary girl who uses an internet dance to express her joy and wonder, to a moving portrait of a grieving mother visited by an unexpected messenger. They are performed by excellent New York actors with a broad array of Broadway, Off-Broadway, TV and film credits. Fireside Fellowship also features beautiful new arrangements of classic Christmas carols such as Angels from the Realms of Glory and O Come, O Come Emmanuel, emerging classics like Mary Did You Know and culminating in choral music from Handel’s Messiah.

Mark your calendar for this special show that will make you laugh, think and be inspired anew.

Then gather your family and make Fireside Fellowship a special part of your Christmas traditions this year!
