Eighteen years and fourteen Christmas plays later, Rick Mattox said he never really wrote much as a kid.
“I just wrote the first play kind of out of the blue,” he said one Sunday afternoon at Lair United Methodist.
The cast that ranges from infants to senior citizens had lunch in the dining hall, before the 2 p.m. practice.
Not only does Mattox write Christmas plays, he also directs them, and sometimes acts in them.
Mattox discussed a scene in this year’s play, ‘Simply Christmas’ with cast member, Pat Snapp.
