The Richland Springs High School Drama Department, the elementary choir, and friends invite the public to join in the mayhem and magic of Barbara Robinson’s THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER this coming Sunday evening, December 5
In the story, the antics of the misfit Herdman family roll over a local Sunday school’s Christmas pageant and teach everyone about the importance of acceptance and goodwill. This play is a gentle reminder that people are able to come together if they just observe and listen to those that do not necessarily see things the same way they do. By listening, people come to understand and by understanding, they come to love.
The show features Emily Smith as Grace Bradley; Brooklyn McGinty as her daughter, Beth; Colton Young as her son, Charlie; and Stephen Soto-Thornhill as her husband. Beth’s friend, Alice, is played by Melanie Hedley. The Herdman children are brought to life by Katelynn Teel (Imogene), Gunner Mann (Ralph), Brennen McGinty (Leroy), Kensie Green (Gladys), Tommy Hollon (Ollie), Jacon Cohn (Claude). The delightfully controlling Mrs. Armstrong is played by Brooke Vaughn. Others in the cast include Kiya Wood, DeAnna Grady, Taylor Terry, Sara Hedley, Jonathan Patino, Trevor Tinney, Ty Mann, Courtney Herbert, Winston Poe, John Greenwood, Remy Wood, Ashlynn Grady, Ashley Ferguson, and Nick Moore. Joe Avila, Stephen Fowler, and Thomas Fowler will round out the crew.
Joining the cast to provide special music will be Mary Katherine Adams on the piano, Neil McMillan on the guitar and vocals, Sue Ransom and Paula Miller in a vocal duet, Maxine Robbins in a solo, and the elementary choir. The play is directed by Patsy Hall and Melanie Smith.
th, at 6:00 p.m. in the school cafetorium. Admission is free and refreshments will be served after the performance.
