The Best Christmas Pageant Ever!

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever!

Children's Theatre
SHAZAM! Activate Community Through Theatre (ACT) presents THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER!, a heart-warming family play for the holidays. ACT Artistic Director, Dr. Wrenn Goodrum, has set the play in the 1950’s. ‘When I first read the play I thought of the 50’s, a time when life seemed simpler, though there’s nothing simple in our production. We are so fortunate to be performing our play at the Warehouse Performing Arts Center. While the space is intimate, we are using the whole theatre for our production – from the kitchen to the bathroom to the lobby.’
THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER! written by Barbara Robinson is the touching story of the unruly, uproarious Herdman family as they wreak havoc during the rehearsals for a local church’s Christmas pageant. Despite their grimy faces and tattered clothes, the Herdmans - “the worst kids in the whole history of the world”- and an entire church congregation discover the true meaning of Christmas. The play opens as plans for the church’s pageant run amuck when the director breaks her leg. Grace Bradley, who didn’t expect to have anything to do with the Christmas pageant, steps in as director. The Herdmans show up at the audition and demand all the leading roles. Chaos erupts but Mrs. Bradley perseveres, and the church youth produce what everyone considers ‘the best Christmas pageant ever’. “Families can really identify with the holiday chaos in CHRISTMAS PAGEANT. It’s a wildly funny story, but the moment of redemption is one that people of all faiths will appreciate. This is the fifth time I’ve directed the play and many people have told me they remember the special message of the play long after they’ve seen it. Everyone takes it to heart and recalls the experience as quite meaningful”, states Goodrum. “And we have a great cast of youth aged 6 – 17 from the Lake Norman area singing, laughing and crying in our crazy holiday play”.
