Beck Center For The Arts to Present Youth Theater Holiday Treat, THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER

Beck Center for the Arts has announced a holiday show perfect for all ages, The Best Christmas Pageant. As one of the oldest continuously running Youth Theater programs in the nation, this 74th season includes a holiday favorite to chase away winter blues.

This delightful comedy, written by Barbara Robinson is based on the best-selling young-adult book by the same name. Beth’s inexperienced mother is put in charge of the church’s Christmas pageant, when the original director breaks her leg. Mayhem ensues when the Herdman kids, known as the most inventively awful kids in history, are cast in the leads. But Beth and her community watch in surprise as the same old Christmas story is rejuvenated by the creativity, energy, and unexpected sincerity of a misunderstood young family. The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is warm, incredibly funny, and sure to get everyone in the holiday spirit.

Rachel Spence, director, says, “We are having a blast putting this beloved book live onstage. The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is a festive reminder to accept everyone. We can’t wait to share the Joy of the season with this Christmas classic Comedy .”
