Come one, come all to not just one, but two Christmas Musicals at Federated Church, 1031 Thompson Way in Placerville, on Friday, Dec. 7 at 6:30 p.m.; Saturday, Dec. 8 at 6:30 p.m.; and Sunday, Dec. 9 at 1:30 p.m.

Two of Federated Church’s choirs, the Teen Choir YES and the Children’s Choir are combining talents to present a festive evening of Christmas music.

The performance starts with the teen’s choir performing “A Christmas Comedy Review — Everything at Kacey’s,” followed by the children’s choir performance of “The Secret of Snowflake County.”

“Everything at Kacey’s” features the teens singing “This Chrismas Season Cough and Sneezin’ Blues,” “I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” and the very popular “Christmas Through the Decades.”

Members of the YES choir are: Amy Bryant, Hanna Bush, Kaitlyn Divine, Cole Fraser, Alexa Flickenger-Renzi, Olivea Flickenger-Renzi, Connor Green, Natalie Hall, Emma Holm, Clayton Johns, Dustin Jordan, Jamie Maynard, Aly Moreno, Sam Murphy, Jake Peterson, Sam Porteous, Corinna Regan and Alayna Short.

The Children’s Choir production takes place in Snowflake County, where Christmas performances and celebrations have become so professional and overblown that they threaten to steal the focus away from the simplicity of the true meaning of Christmas: the birth of Jesus.

The voice of reason is little Suzy Hallmark who keeps telling her mom, the mayor, that she has a secret to show her.

She eventually reminds the whole county of the meaning of Christmas, and it is only then that they realize that they’ve forgotten what is really important.

The message of Christmas doesn’t need to be dressed up in lights or decorations to shine brightly — at its purist is the brilliance of the one true light, born in a humble stable — hope has come.

Members of the Children’s Choir are: Nihna Atkins, Logan Baker, Olivia Baker, Macy Battershell, Scott Bruett, Hanna Bush, Tessa Bush, Gwyn Cahill, Angelica Cain, Ella Coburn, Natalie Davis, Talia DeBey, Dakota Evans, Colton Folena, Isabelle Ford, Lacey Frailey, Drake Franz, Josie Franz, Hannah Hall, Erynn Hauge, Evan Hauge, Jenni Heidemann, Mikayla Ide, Teyah Jackson, Ben Jilbert, Clayton Johns, Sarah Johns, Camden Kalteren, Sarah Leveroni, Melanie Lyons, Mitch Lyons, Julia Mallot, Parker Mallot, Allison McDonald, Hannah McLean, Trista Morkowski, Allison Parker, Bria Pecci, Emma Pickens, Kim Quicksall, Anneke Rorden, Lindsay Scales, Nicole Scales, Shannon Scales, Donovan Scott, Kayden Scott, Kaleb Tatum, Elizabeth (Lizzy) Tatum, Alex Wade, Alyssa Wade, Ayden Wells, and Morgan Wells.

There is no charge for the musical presentation but donations will be accepted.
