Theater to present magical Christmas

By Bruce Caldwell - Contributing columnist

The Sampson Community Theater will be holding a very special show this year as our tribute to the birth of Jesus Christ. On Dec. 18-19 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 20 at 3 p.m., a husband and wife duo will present the Taylor Michaels Christmas Magic and Music show which is unique in that 49 percent of the show will be magic and 51 percent Christmas music, but is guaranteed to be 100 percent fun for all and a perfect venue for getting us ready to remember the reason for the season.

This is not a patron sponsor event and tickets for this popular show are available at Inkspot and Matthews Gifts and at the theater during the morning. Make your plans now to welcome Christ’s birth by listening to and singing carols both old and new to his honor and enjoy some slick magic tricks at the same time. We thank Dan Holland for his efforts in making this show available to us at this time of the year.

It’s time to become a new Patron Sponsor or renew your Patron Sponsor tickets for our 2016 season. A Patron Sponsor ticket allows two people to attend all of our shows at a reduced rate and also get the name of the patrons or business in all our programs. You may purchase your 2016 Patron Sponsor tickets by contacting any Board member. Our proposed 2016 shows are listed below.

Our website is available at: and we are on Facebook but if you visit us there, we ask that you “like” us while there.

Thoughts Until Next Week

Water is the most essential element of life, because without water you can’t make coffee.

Some people have a condition that prevents them from going on a diet: They get hungry.

Some people don’t understand women. These people are called men.
