In Christ’s love, the One Sleepy Night – Detroit Team


To celebrate the life-transforming news of the birth of Jesus through a GLORIOUS theatrical musical that delights the audience and fosters racially diverse friendships.

Our Goals

Move hearts.
By telling the story of Grandpa Benny Wilson, struggling in retirement with his life and his wife, who discovers that his granddaughter, Shantelle, doesn’t know the story of Christmas. Through the magic of his telescope the characters in the modern story become figures in the ancient narrative, where all roads lead to Bethlehem and the appearance of the Gift that changes everything, late One Sleepy Night.

Fill the theater.
We will launch the show December 6-9 at the Garden Theater in Detroit with 300-seat capacity located on Woodward near Little Caesar’s Arena. Then move to the larger venue of the Music Hall located right across from Ford Field that seats 1,700 for a gala December 15 performance. Both locations provide a safe, exciting environment right in the heart of Detroit with restaurants nearby for dinner before the show and Christmas cheer everywhere. Word on the street is that Blitzen and an elf will appear for a photo op with the kids.

Bridge racial gaps between churches and communities in Metro Detroit through this initiative.
