THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER

December 18 - 21

Directed by Robert White

By Barbara Robinson

In this hilarious Christmas classic, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting 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!  This delightful comedy is adapted from the best-selling Young Adult book, and has become a holiday staple for theatre across the United States! Features plenty of great roles for children and adults, a few favorite Christmas Carols, and a lot of laughs!

"An American classic." - McCall's Magazine

"One of the best Christmas stories ever - and certainly one of the funniest." - The Seattle Times

THE MUSICAL ADVENTURES OF FLAT STANLY JR

May 7 - 10

Directed by Debra White

Lyrics by  Timothy Allen McDonald and Jonathan K. Waller
Music by  David Weinstein and Timothy Allen McDonald and Jonathan K. Waller and Stephen Gabriel
Book by  Timothy Allen McDonald

Based on the beloved 1964 children's book

written by Jeff Brown, the stage version is a whirlwind musical travelogue, Stanley – the ultimate exchange student – scours the globe for a solution to his

unusual problem. He's stamped, posted and

cancelled from Hollywood to France to Honolulu and beyond. And whether he's thwarting a robbery

at the Louvre Museum in Paris, or “hanging ten”

off the coast of Hawaii, Stanley is closing in on his

goal of being a three-dimensional boy once more.
