Iowa City – The Young Footliters opens up the holiday season with a production of The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, based on the book by Barbara Robinson. The show runs at the Iowa City Community Theatre, located at the Johnson County Fairgrounds, Friday and Saturday, November 11 and 12 at 7:00 pm and Sunday, November 13 at 2:00 pm.
Grace Bradley is called in to direct the community church’s production of the Christmas play. Unfortunately, this is the year the Herdman children-the dirtiest, most feared neighborhood kids-decide to bully themselves into the lead roles. Of course, the town believes the play is hopelessly lost, but this is Christmas Eve and miracles do happen. Kids find meaning in the Bible’s tale and the Herdmans certainly bring a fresh take on the age-old story. When the curtain finally goes up, a miracle begins and it all turns into…The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.
If you’ve never seen this classic story, you should definitely bring the whole family for a reminder of the true meaning of the holidays! Tickets available at the door.
