Wise Guys: The First Christmas Story

November 3, 2023 - December 16, 2023

The year is 0. A brand new star appears in the sky. Three religious scholars thrust together by fate must embark on a race against time to catch the birth of God (or, wait, is it the Son of God. Both? Neither?) To get there, they’ll have to endure perilous deserts, cutthroat bandits, the mad puppet king of Judea and most of all… each other. It’s Bethlehem or bust in this road trip comedy 2,023 years in the making.


Written by Chase Wheaton-Werle, Directed by Becca Holloway
