How about an alternative this Christmas to the traditional Joseph, Mary and the Three Wise Men story? Three Chicks and a Stage, Effingham Performance Center and more than 70 area people come together to bring The Best Christmas Pageant Ever to the Effingham Performance Center Saturday, December 8, at 7p.m. and Sunday, December 9 at 2p.m.
Tickets go on sale Thursday, October 11 at 11 a.m. Tickets are available at www.TheEPC.org or at the EPC Box Office, 1325 Outer Belt West, Effingham, IL and by phone at (217) 540-2788. Box Office hours are Monday - Friday, 11a.m. – 2p.m. and 11a.m. to curtain on performance days.
Young Beth Bradley (Sophie Deters) narrates The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, the story of her brother Charlie ( Mick Willenborg), her mother Grace (Stef Kingery) and her father Bob (Geoff Lewis) trying to put on the annual church Christmas pageant, despite having to include the Herdman Family kids in the cast. They are perhaps the meanest, nastiest, most inventively awful kids in the history of the world, played by Alexandria Jorn, Alex Jackman, Daniel Flack, Nicholas Burton, Ben Buzzard and Isabella Jorn. You can watch the Herdmans meet the Christmas story in a head-on collision.
