'The Best Christmas Pageant Ever' on stage at Kenan Center's Taylor Theater


Mon, Nov 27th 2017 07:00 am
Barbara Robinson's classic tale "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" comes to the Kenan Center Taylor Theatre this December. Directed by Peg Merrill, who directed the same play on the same stage nearly 20 years ago, "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" is entertainment for the whole family, and a story that comically and reverently celebrates the true meaning of Christmas. Performances take place at the Taylor Theater, 433 Locust St., Lockport, at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 8, 9, 15-16 and 3 p.m. Dec. 10 and 17.
Tickets are $14/$12 members for adults; $10/$8 members for children, and can be purchased at the Kenan Center business office, online at Ticketleap, or by calling 716-433-2617 to charge by phone.
In this Christmas story, Grace and Bob Bradley (Allyson Quader and Chris Sherman) struggle to produce their church Christmas pageant after the bossy grand dame of their congregation (Betsy Ross) breaks her leg just before rehearsals begin. The Bradley siblings, Beth (Emma Flatau), who narrates the story, and her brother, Charlie (Nico Radwanski), reluctantly get roped into the production, and find themselves and their church friends working with the Herdmans - probably the most inventively awful kids in history. It's fun and mayhem when the Bradleys and the Herdmans collide to bring the Christmas story to the stage.
More than a dozen children from Niagara and Erie counties, as well as some busybody "church ladies" and the pastor, round out the cast. For more information visit kenancenter.org.
