Last weekend for the “Best Christmas Pageant Ever!”

A profusion of holiday entertainment is on tap for this weekend as the Triumvirate Theatre presents their largest cast ever assembled for “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever!” The hilarious holiday classic by Barbara Robinson is directed by Kate Schwarzer. In an interview with the Dispatch Schwarzer talked about the show and what makes it the Best Christmas Pageant Ever, “Well it’s a bit tongue in cheek as all indications are that this will be the worst pageant ever because it has been taken over by the local family of hoodlums, five girls and a boy who basically crash the church Christmas pageant and take it over giving everyone cause to believe that it’ll be a disaster and probably should be canceled, but it’s a Christmas story! So you can expect a happily ever after ending that is very family friendly and entertaining for all ages, even though it may be a little different than what you may be expecting,” said Schwarzer.

Regarding the challenges of directing a cast of more than 20 kids on stage at the same time Kate admitted, “It can be challenging, but I have a theatre voice and know how to project it. I’m very happy that every kid that auditioned got a part and they have been so good to work with and have proven to be great listeners and great at learning their lines and have been working so hard and I can promise you a great show that everyone will enjoy seeing,” she said. The final weekend for The Greatest Christmas Pageant Ever! is December 18th & 19th with show times at 7:00pm nightly plus a matinee on Saturday at 2:00pm. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students and are not guaranteed to be available at the door but can be purchased in advance by going to triumviratetheatre.org or online through Ticketleap.
