MAYBERRY CHRISTMAS is a traditional, old timey Christmas show with great music, humor, audience interaction & holiday inspiration. This special concert features “The Andy Griffith Show” stars Rodney Dillard (one of the original Darling boys) and Maggie Peterson (Charlene Darling).  Beverly Dillard, The Dillard Band and David Browning (The Mayberry Deputy) are also part of this memorable holiday show providing your audience with the essence of what a Mayberry Christmas means to all of us.

The show includes pre-show mingling by Mayberry Deputy (David Browning), traditional Christmas music like I’ll be Home with Bells On, Angels We Have Heard on High and Silent Night, bible readings, comedy skits and inspirational stories.   The show runs about 1 – 2 hours, depending on your event, and is followed by a meet & greet after the show with pictures and recordings available for purchase.


“Honestly, one of the very greatest experiences of my life was to host the Christmas in Mayberry show with the Rodney Dillard Band, David Browning, ‘The Mayberry Deputy’, and Maggie Peterson-Mancuso ‘Charlene Darling’ here at Grace Fellowship.  This Christmas in Mayberry show is unique, extremely funny, packed with the greatest musical talent, really full with warm Christmas feeling and best of all has the real biblical Christian message.  If you want great entertainment with all this and more, I urge you to host the Christmas in Mayberry show. – Frank Ingram, Jr., Pastoral Care Pastor, Grace Fellowship, West Palm Beach, Florida

“Christmas In Mayberry was the highlight of our Christmas season last year. The wonderful mixture of music and comedy, all in a wonderful Christian atmosphere, put everyone in the Christmas spirit. The beautiful six guitar version of Silent Night visibly moved people as they contemplated the true meaning of Christmas through this classic Christmas carol. While we are a small congregation (we average seventy for morning worship) Christmas In Mayberry attracted a capacity crowd of 200 to our church and served as a great outreach event for us. We have already scheduled the event for a return engagement in 2013 and are adding an additional show to take care of the demand we already have for tickets for the 2013 season. Don’t miss this great opportunity to have Rodney Dillard (Rodney Darling) and  his band, Beverly Dillard, Maggie Peterson Mancuso (Charlene Darling), and David “The Mayberry Deputy” Browning bring Mayberry to your community this Christmas season.  Your church members and community residents are sure to leave this event ‘All Keyed Up for Christmas.”  Rick Spell
