Saturday's Warrior is a musical fantasy that originated on the stage in 1974 with music by Lex de Azevedo and book and lyrics by Doug Stewart. It is based on the idea that we existed before we were born into this life, in a realm where we not only had relationships with others with whom we would share our earthly journey but that we might even have made promises to them. Saturday's Warrior is the age-old story of a prodigal son struggling to find himself as he faces temptations, family expectations, and the changing values of the times.
In 2009, John Jones explored an unmapped section of the famous Nutty Putty Cave. After becoming stuck in a hole 18 inches wide and 150 feet under ground, rescue crews worked frantically and heroically to free him. This is the story inspired by not only the incident at Nutty Putty but by the way John lived his entire life.
It's Christmas Eve, and Leland Jeppsons' hope is all but gone. Unemployed and struggling to get by, he had at least wanted to give his family a special Christmas. But with the train bearing their gifts nowhere in sight, Christmas seems like just another thing they'll have to do without.
But just as a blizzard threatens the town, the Jeppsons's packages arrive at the post office in an unexpected delivery. Postman George Schow hesitates to brave the storm, but his son, Sidney, will stop at nothing to bring Christmas to the Jeppsons—and ask their beautiful daughter, Ellen, to the New Year's Eve dance. Now it's up to the father and son to battle the elements in an effort to reach the Jeppson farm. Will they make it in time for a Christmas miracle?
Don't miss this heartwarming reminder that while God helps those who help themselves, sometimes He does so through others.
Even with Christmas around the corner, for the Buckley boys, payback almost always wins out over brotherly love. That is until the four brothers join forces against a common adversary—the Hagbarts—the meanest bullies at their middle school. But now Mom has decided that the Buckley family is going to "elve" the Hagbarts this year for Christmas. Eleven-year-old Matthew can hardly stand it. By day the Hagbarts torture the Buckley brothers into submission, and by night the Buckleys secretly deliver Christmas treats and gifts to their sworn enemies. Soon the war of wits escalates to an incredible scheme designed to get the ultimate revenge on the Hagbarts. But now that Matthew has been learning that he's supposed to do good to those who hate him, what will he do when a little push becomes a great big shove? The Christmas Project is a heartwarming comedy the whole family will love.
Father Christmas is a fading memory after Christmas hasn’t come for several years. A young orphan girl, Ayden, receives a magic crystal from a dying elf, with a warning that the North has lost its magic, and that she alone can save Christmas. Ayden and her orphan friends begin a perilous journey, and must escape dragons, goblins, bandits, ogres and other fantasy creatures as they team up with Airk, the wayward son of Father Christmas, to return a stolen Christmas orb to the North. When Santa’s magic cannot overpower the growing Snarl (an evil forest with tentacle branches), Ayden and Airk must deliver Christmas on a sleigh pulled by a young dragon, fulfilling Christmas wishes for children to restore Santa’s magic and save Christmas.
