Theatre in the Grove is excited to announce its family, holiday production of Barbara Robinson’s classic “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever!”
When the six Herdman kids – considered the terror of teachers, parents, and students – show up at the auditions and manage to snatch the major roles in the pageant, everyone is convinced that this Christmas pageant, if it is presented at all, will be “the worst Christmas pageant ever.” As the spirit of the season comes alive in the Herdmans, the audience learns that things are not always what they seem and all discover that there are still lessons in kindness, tolerance, and humanity to be learned from the story of the stable in Bethlehem.
The production is directed by Jessica Reed, and runs from Dec. 4 – 20, with Friday and Saturday performances at 7:30 p.m, and Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m.
Tickets are $14 for adults and $12 for seniors (60+) and youth (ages 17 and under).
Tickets are on sale now by clicking on the link below, or at the box office each Wednesday from 4 p.m. – 6 p.m, or one hour before the performance.
Theatre in the Grove is located at 2028 Pacific Ave. Forest Grove OR 97116.
