MARYSVILLE – “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever: The Musical,” a joyous celebration of the holiday season, will be performed Nov. 29-Dec. 15 at the Red Curtain Arts Center, 9315 State Ave. #J. 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 while these kids have never even heard the Christmas story, they definitely have rewrites. Soon everyone is calling for reluctant director Grace Bradley to cancel the whole thing. It’s up to Grace and the reverend to help their community see the Christmas story and the Herdman kids through new eyes in this funny and touching holiday classic.
The show, with seven adults and 12 young actors, features catchy tunes and an inspirational message, is great for all ages.
Performances are Friday and Saturday nights at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 for adults; available online at brownpapertickets.com; at the box office by phone 360-322-7402); or in-person Tuesday-Saturday from 2-6 p.m.
