THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER Coming to Paradise Theatre
THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER! by Barbara Robinson, directed by and with set and lighting design by Jeff Richards, will play the Paradise Theatre (3114 Judson St, Gig Harbor, WA 98335), November 17 - December 9, 2017.
Sound is by Mike Dullum, with costumes by Amy Knickerbocker.
THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER! tells the story of Imogene, Claude, Ralph, Leroy, Ollie, and Gladys - six delinquent children named the Herdmans who were engaged in misfit behavior for their age such as smoking, drinking jug wine, and shoplifting. They go to church for the first time after being told that the church offers snacks. Despite protests from other church members, they are given roles in the Sunday school's Christmas play, in which they tell the Christmas story in a non-conventional fashion.
Performances are Fri at 7:30pm, Sat at 2pm & 7:30pm. The play is performed in two acts with one intermission. Approximate running time is 1 1/2 hours, including the intermission. Celebrate Opening Night with Wine & Cheese at 7:00 pm. Wine sponsored by Gorman Family & Mark Ryan Winery and the Board of Directors.
