I actually called Childrens Hospital in Birmingham and asked to volunteer during the holidays and was told about the Sugar Plum Shop and how it would benefit the kids and parents that were there through the holidays
The Sugar Plum Shop is basically a toy store built inside the hospital from the donations received to the hospital. It allows the parents of any child that is sick or in the hospital during the holidays to shop for them without leaving the hospital and for any siblings they may have also so they can remain close to each other during Christmas and they also do the same throughout the year if they are in the hospital during their birthday
The City of Troy and surrounding areas have really came together over the years to make this a success and have jumped on board without hesitation. I work with a great group of guys and am honored to be a part of something to bring so many smiles to the faces of kids that are unfortunate to be at home during the holidays.

Tell us about the Angel Of Hope Statue The Angel Of Hope Statue was organized by Steve Hardwick in 2016 and erected at Westgate Park in Dothan. It is a place for parents who have lost a child to come and visit to find comfort knowing that their child won’t be forgotten which is the greatest fear most parents have after losing a child
The vigil is held every year on Dec 6 at 7 pm for parents who have lost a child and also siblings friends and relatives of the child to come and join others in remembering their child by placing a white carnation at the end of the ceremony at the base of the statue.

The Dinner seating for this show has SOLD OUT! (There is a possibility that SEACT will be adding an additional dinner night, but that has yet to be determined.)
How many characters, adults and children, are in the play? Grown up Ralph, his mom and dad, his teacher, Santa, as well as nine kids including child Ralphie!
I understand that you have several actors from several cities in the Wiregrass in this show. Where are they from? We have actors from Dothan, Ozark, Andalusia, so we have a good representation from the Wiregrass which is what we strive for as a community theatre!
SEACT is doing "A Christmas Story" for their Holiday Show. How is the play different from the movie that we are all so familiar with? In the play, Ralph, who is all grown up is remembering this very special Christmas when his greatest wish was to get a Red Ryder BB gun with a compass and this "thing that tells time." All of the characters are the same as the movie with the exception of Ralph who helps to narrate the story.
What are the dates of SEACT'S "A Christmas Story" and how do people get tickets? The show will run December 4th - 9th, Monday through Saturday, promptly at 7 o'clock each night, at the Cultural Arts Center in Dothan.
The walk lasts approximately 40 to 45 minutes. Dress appropriately for being outside during the walk.
Can reservations be made? No. We began taking reservations on 11/1 and reserved slots are full. However, walk ins are welcome. There are as many walk in slots as reserved slots.
Is Walk Thru Bethlehem handicap accessible. Walk Thru Bethlehem is wheelchair accessible. The walkway is dirt and wheelchairs are available, if needed, for those who have difficulty walking. There will be members available to push wheelchairs.
What is the purpose of Walk Thru Bethlehem? The purpose is to keep the focus on the real meaning of Christmas and to share the Gospel.
