The Butterfly Connection opens Reindeers Unplugged this weekend
A new Christmas show for Tarrant County.

1440 North Main Street
Fort Worth, TX

The Butterfly Connection has been around only a few years, yet they have been able to provide Tarrant County with some amazing, new work. This week, they are opening Reindeers Unplugged which will run from December 12-21. Just in time for the holidays, it's a family show about faith, overcoming death, and working together despite differences. It's about renewing the Christmas spirit and celebrating what truly matters.
Reindeers Unplugged follows the journey of some light up lawn furniture as they try and save one of their own from the Big Green Monster (The Dump Truck). When they discover their friend is headed for destruction, these unlikely characters band together and decide to unplug themselves, despite the looming death and peril of doing so, and head out on a quest to save their friend. Along the way, they discover what the true meaning of Christmas is, inspire a new Christmas song, and save Baby Jesus! (Or Baby Jesus saves them!)
Written by Rob Bosquez and Kate McDougall, the show will be directed by Adam Dietrich, who also provides some additional writing. Lighting Design is by Nikki Deshea Smith and Set Design is by Adam Dietrich. Plus, the new album by Texas Gypsies is featured. The cast includes Rob Bosquez as Robert, Thad Isbell as Thad Shallow, Maggie Allyson as Sadie Shallow, Victoria Hines as Priscilla Hues, Jage Bothham as Darren Hues, and Shawn Gann as Harold. Additional cast includes Beverly Jean as Bethany the Angel, and Adam Dietrich as Himself.
