Thursday marked four days since Christmas, but the spirit of the season filled Plymouth Congregational Church with its 42nd annual Boar's Head and Yule Log Festival. The two-night event continues today with shows at 5:30 and 8 p.m. in the sanctuary of the church, 501 W. Berry St. Tickets are free to the public, with donations accepted. About 3,000 audience members attend each year. It costs about $20,000 each year to put on the production with 300 cast, crew, choir, and orchestra members. The show moves from Beefeaters carrying a Yule log and lords and ladies dancing amid revelers in King Wenceslas's rousing court to the serenity of the Nativity story's ethereal songs and dances. For information, call Plymouth at 423-9424.
