Union Street Players announces auditions for The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. Auditions will be held Monday September 24 and Tuesday September 25 from 7:00-9:00 in the Pella Community Center. The show will be directed by Steve Hickle, who just appeared in USP’s summer musical The Music Man and has extensive theatrical experience in the Des Moines area.
There are parts for four men, six women, eight boys and nine girls. No experience is necessary and everyone is invited to audition.
In this hilarious Christmas tale, 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 Herdmans
collide with the Christmas story head on! "An American classic."–
McCall’s Magazine. "One of the best Christmas stories ever– and
certainly one of the funniest."– Seattle Times. This delightful comedy
is adapted from the best selling book and the only story ever to run
twice in McCall’s Magazine.
Production dates Nov 29 – Dec 2 (in conjunction with Pella’s "Tour of Homes") Show times 7 PM, except
for Sunday matinee – 2 PM.
