XYZ - Trips and Events


XYZ Trips


Throughout the year, we offer a variety of trips and retreats sponsored by various groups. Here are some of the trips coming up...


Upcoming XYZ (eXtra Years of Zest) Trips:


Cumberland County Playhouse (October 24):

The XYZ Group is planning a trip to Crossville to see “The Drowsy Chaperone” on Tuesday, October 24th, 2017.  We plan to depart the Hixson UMC parking lot at 10 AM and have lunch at the Cumberland State Park.  We then go on to the play at 1 PM CDT in Crossville.  After the play, we plan to stop for a few minutes at the Cheese Haus for cheese, candy, etc.. We expect to be back at the church about 6:30 PM. 


When a die-hard theatre fan (Jason Ross) plays his favorite cast album, the characters come to life in this 1928 musical farce.  Two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan, and an intoxicated chaperone should constitute a real romp for Mr. Ross. 


This musical is rated PG and is on the Main Stage.  Costs will be $39 per person including play, lunch, and bus.  Please contact Chuck Sedgwick for tickets and more information at or 423-842-7287
