The Best Time of Year! All original Musical Written by Carrie and her songwriting class

For the past year Carrie and a handful of teens at Moonlight Stage Company have been writing Moonlight's next all original Musical! It's almost showtime! For those in the Raleigh area, join us for this family friendly show!


When bad weather prohibits Mrs. Evans from getting home to her family by Christmas Eve, she places her eldest child, 13 year old Veronica Evans, in charge of the annual Holiday Party. Veronica Evans sees this as the opportunity she’s been waiting for to help her family and friends have the “perfect Christmas”. An idealist who also happens to wrestle with OCD, Veronica soon finds herself thwarted at every turn as her two younger sisters have very different ideas of what the perfect Christmas should look like! 

Middle child Jane Evans (who’d much rather be called Desdemona Beatrice Juliet Evans, thank you very much), has dreams of launching her Shakespearean Theatrical debut, while the spunky, youngest daughter Nellie has found a new cause to protest: Santa overworking his reindeer. Mr. Evans has his own dreams of becoming the next Gordon Ramsey, while the youngest Evans child, Evan Evans sticks close to his neighborhood pal, Ethan, and tries to stay out of the way of the strong willed Evans’ women. Even Grandpa Evans, a little gruff and old fashioned, has his opinions of how to Christmas Eve should be spent! 

Veronica’s best friends, Tiffany and Carl Randy (who also happens to be a singing cowboy), try to keep Veronica sane during the inevitable clash of wills, as the three Evans’ sisters battle for control over how to pull off The Best Christmas Ever!
