Casting Call

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

by
Barbara Robinson

Directed by
Linda Giordano and Michael A. Muller



"The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" is a hilarious Christmas tale that is good for all ages. A couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids-- probably the most inventively awful kids in history. You won't believe the mayhem-- and the fun-- when the Herdman's collide with the Christmas story head on!

Directors Linda Giordano and Mike Muller are looking to fill roles for 6 females, 4 males, and numerous boys and girls. Readings will be from the script. Rehearsals start the week of October 15
