Take the worst kids in the history of the world and mix it all up with a bunch of drama-loving kids ages seven to seventeen, and what do you have?
The Area Stage Conservatory’s production of…Best Christmas Pageant Ever.
The play presents an uproarious and unexpected take on the holiday spirit.
Director Giancarlo Rodaz, whose exhilarating rendition of Heathers last spring drew sell-out crowds, has set the group’s latest production in an 80s of mullet haircuts, mom jeans, Gameboys, and awkward yearning.
“It’s a tragically mediocre middle-of-nowhere town where life revolves around church,” says Rodaz. “The town’s spirit is tested by the Herdmans, who challenge their values and their idea of Christmas.”
The show also boasts a musical finale by Broadway choreographer Adam Cates, whose credits include associate choreographer on the Tony winning Anastasia and the Tony-nominated A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder.
Adults $20 to $25. Students $10 to $15. Area Stage Company is located at 1560 S. Dixie Hwy. Call 305-666-2078. http://www.areastagecompany.com
