MARYSVILLE – “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever: The Musical” highlights entertainment coming up at the Red Curtain Foundation for the Arts.

Events kick off Nov. 9 with the [placeholders] improv comedy group, starting at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15.

Next comes tryouts Nov. 13-14 for the play “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Gynecologic Oncology Unit at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center of New York City.” Roles are for three women and one man. The R-rated show includes strong language and sexual situations.

The Christmas Pageant play will be performed Nov. 29 to Dec. 15; Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.

In it, the Herdmans are the worst kids in the history of the world…so when they crash Sunday school and demand parts in the Christmas pageant, the whole town panics. There’s not supposed to be biting or cigar-smoking in Bethlehem, and these kids have never even heard the Christmas story. Soon everyone is calling for director Grace Bradley to cancel the whole thing. It’s up to Grace and the Reverend to help the community see the Christmas story and the Herdman kids through new eyes in this buoyant musical adaptation of the funny and touching holiday classic.

Tickets are $20, $10 for those 10 and younger.

Finally, “Scrooge in Rouge” is set for Dec. 19-22 with performances at 8 p.m. on Thursday through Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday.

If Christmas is too sweet for you then be sure to see this R-rated, quick change, cross-dressing version of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”. The Royal Music Hall Twenty-Member Variety Players are beset with a widespread case of food poisoning, leaving only three members to perform the Dickens classic.

The undaunted trio gamely face missed cues, ill-fitting costumes, and having no one to play Tiny Tim. “Scrooge in Rouge” abounds in bad puns, naughty double-entendres, and witty songs. Tickets are available online at brownpapertickets.com; at the RCF box office; by phone 360-322-7402; or in-person Tuesday-Saturday from 2-6 p.m.

The Red Curtain is at 9315 State Ave, Suite J.
