Indian Valley Theatre announces open auditions for their holiday production of “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.” Auditions are Friday, September 28, from 6 – 8 p.m., and again Monday, October 1, from 7-9 p.m. at the Historic Opera House of Sandwich.
The Best Christmas Pageant Ever focuses on the unruly, ill-behaved children of the Herdman family who decide to take over the town’s church and Christmas pageant. The Herdman children, who have never heard the Christmas story before, are cast in the pageant. The pageant is the most unusual one that the town has seen, and quite possibly the best one ever.
Men, women and children are needed to fill 4 male (adult), 6 female (adult) roles, as well as 8 boys and 9 girls, ages 6 and up. Please be prepared to read cold from the script.
Directed by Rich Bryan of Sandwich, performances of “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” will be December 7-9, 2012 at the Sandwich Opera House. Tickets will be on sale at a later date.
This show was first staged by Indian Valley Theatre in 1988 and has been a bi-annual classic for many years. For more information, please call Producer, Debbie Merkel at 815-793-2310 or Rich Bryan at 815-786-6281.
