Sugar Factory Playhouse and West Jordan Theater Arts are proud to present "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" by Beverly Robinson December 18-20 at 7:30 p.m. and December 20 at 2 p.m. at the Viridian Event Center (8030 S. 1825 W.) in West Jordan, directed by Pat Oliver.
"The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" follows the harried and comical efforts of Mrs. Bradley to put on her church’s Christmas pageant, something she’s never had to do before. Making matters significantly more difficult is the addition of the Herdman children, a raucous group of youngsters that will certainly make this year’s pageant the most…memorable ever. Mrs. Bradley has her job cut out for her as she tries to corral wild kids and live up to everyone’s expectations. Is there still room for the Christmas spirit amidst such chaos?
"The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" has become a holiday classic full of laughter and carried by a deeper message about the true meaning of Christmas and the joy and innate purity of children. Join us for holiday magic that is sure to put your family in the Christmas spirit!
Tickets are $8 for general admission and $5 for seniors (60 and older), students with ID, children younger than 12, and groups of 10 or more. For ticket information, visit the WJ Theater Arts Facebook page.
