Your presence will make this show ‘The Best Christmas Pageant Ever’

The Herdmans are absolutely the worst kids in the history of the world. They lie and steal and smoke cigars (even the girls). They talk dirty, hit little kids, cuss their teachers, set fire to an old broken-down toolhouse, and take the name of the Lord in vain. So no one is prepared when the Herdmans invade church one Sunday – and decide to take over the annual Christmas pageant. None of them has ever heard the Christmas story before. Their interpretation – that the wise men are a bunch of dirty spies and Herod needs a good beating – has a lot of people up in arms. But the actual pageant is full of surprises for everyone, starting with the Herdmans themselves.

It’s “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” and it’s back for its final run at the Sugar Factory Playhouse starting Thursday, November 29 and running through Saturday, December 15, 2007. It’s a family-friendly play about a congregation learning a lesson in Christian acceptance produced by the West Jordan Theater Arts.  The show is directed by Pat Oliver.

“Most shows sell out,” Oliver warned, “so plan on getting your tickets soon at the West Jordan Maceys.”

Tickets are $5 each, or $3 for children, seniors and students with group discounts available. Tickets will also be available at the door at 7 p.m. nightly only if seats are still available. “Last year we had many church, youth and ladies’ groups get tickets for their Christmas parties and activities,” Oliver said.  Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. on Mondays, Thursdays (except Dec 6), Fridays and Saturdays from November 29 through December 15, and matinees at noon on December 1, 8 and 15. The Sugar Factory Playhouse is located at 8201 South 2200 West in West Jordan.
