It is almost like it is Christmas all year for the Capital City Players.

Joni Weinbaum said that while it is a little odd to put on a show, "Christmas Belles," that focuses on the Yuletide when most people just finished focusing on Valentine's Day, the comedy of the show works any time of the year.

"It has more to do with the fact that it is a play within a play," Weinbaum said. "You have these botched performances of the worst possible Christmas pageant you could ever imagine."

The show, which is the second part of a trilogy, follows the Capital City Players' performance last year of "Dearly Beloved" and brings fans back to the little town of Fayro, Texas, home of the Futrelle Sisters.

Doors will open at 6 p.m. on Feb. 18-19 and 24-26 at Shikles Auditorium. For the matinees on Feb. 20 and 27, doors will open at noon. Tickets are $30 and are available by e-mailing or calling (573) 681-9012. Visit their website at for more information.
