'Best Christmas Pageant Ever' is at the Lofte
The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley announces that the beloved children's story, 'The Best Christmas Pageant Ever,' will open on the main stage on Saturday, November 30th.
Based upon the book written by Barbara Robinson, this is the story of the six rough-and-tumble Herdman kids who bully their way into the annual Sunday School Nativity play. The church ladies, the Revrand and even the volunteer fire department are sure this will be the worst Christmas pageant ever, but the Sunday School teacher remains stubbornly optimistic. The production is filled with youthful energy and the true spirit of Christmas.
The production is directed by Kevin Colbert. Starring as the pageant director and her husband are Anne Pope and Scott Nielsen of Eagle. Their children, Charlie and Beth help to narrate the story, and are played by real-life brother and sister Noah and Tess Arent of Murdock. The Herdmans are played by Mia Thomas of Bellevue, Samuel Gautheir and Adeline Morgenson of Louisville, Talon Flodman and Gus Pope of Eagle and Xander Monson of Brock. In all, there are fifty-six people in the play. Forty-four of them are children!
The production will run November 30, December 1, 6-8 and 12-15. Curtain times are 7:30pm except for Sundays which are 2pm matinees. Tickets are $17 for adults and only $10 for children under 12. For reservations, please call the Lofte box office at 402-234-2553.
