The Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts (TAPA) and TLC Federal Credit Union anounce the cast of The Christmas Express, the next production of this year’s season. The Christmas Express is a comedy full of puns, one-liners, funny situations and nutty characters, set in the town of Holly, which is sorely in need of some Christmas spirit. A stranger comes to town named Leo, who brings surprises, and ultimately, hope to one and all. The cast includes Brittany Durrer, Samantha Swindler, Barbi Fox, Deb Cherry, Joni Sauer-Folger, Richard Coon, Robert Buckingham, Robert Kratz, and Mark Johnson.

The Christmas Express is directed by Becki Wilhelm and producted by Debbie Coon. Performance dates are December 7, 8, 14, 15, 21 and 22 at 7:00 pm and December 9 and 16 at 2:00 pm. All performances are at The Barn Community Playhouse at 12th and Ivy in Tillamook. Tickets are on sale now and would make the perfect holiday gift. Get in the holiday mood and take The Christmas Express to the town of Holly – to a run-down train depot where Christmas magic abounds. Reservations and tickets can be purchased in advance at Diamond Art Jewlers at 309 Main Ave. in Tillamook or call (503) 842-7940. Visit our facebook page at
