The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

Auditions for TCT’s holiday production of The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Rob-inson will be held October 1 and 2 in the rehearsal hall of the Lyric Theatre. This hilarious Christmas classic is about a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant. They’re faced with cast-ing the Herdman kids–probably the most inventively awful kids in history. You won’t believe the mayhem – and the fun – when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head on!
The cast includes both children and adults, ages 7 to 60+. Production dates for the show are Decem-ber 7-9. Christi Houin will direct. For more information, email christih_3@comcast.net or call the TCT of-fice at 844-1935.
