Storyline

A rural small-town counts itself lucky when famous, temporarily unemployed director Vera Parks is hired, actually by secret admirer Jack Harmon, the local dentist, to direct their annual Christlas 'pageant' play. It's an uphill battle against amateurism and traditionalist conservatives, but townsfolk -amog whom unsuspected talent is discovered- and Vera end up bonding, just when she gets a dream offer to direct a recluse star's come-back. Written by KGF Vissers

You Know the Story
12 December 2011 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

This is an utterly predictable but sweet and well-told story. Melissa Gilbert plays a stage director who has annoyed everyone in Manhattan, so when she gets an offer to direct a Christmas pageant somewhere upstate, she takes the gig. The usual heartwarming journey of self-discovery and love ensues.

Miss Gilbert gives a very graceful performance and is willing to undergo the indignities that the occasional bit of farce demand. The roles are one-note affairs, although the way the love interest slides in is interestingly handled. In short, this is the usual Hallmark Channel non-fantasy Christmas story.
