The Best Christmas Pageant Ever Runs November 22 – December 8, 2013: In this hilarious Christmas tale, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids, 6 delinquent siblings who smoke, kick, punch, and steal (they’ve started coming to church for the free gourmet snacks they’ve heard, wrongly, are offered).  The other children at the church are afraid to audition for fear of getting beat up, so the Herdmans get all the biggest parts – despite having never heard the Nativity story. A terrific piece for family audiences! The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is directed by Cary Nichols. Performances are Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 pm and Sunday afternoons at 2:30 pm. Tickets range from $12.00-$22.00.

The Autumn Players’ Readers Theatre Showcase Series Presents Hobson’s Choice: This lighthearted comedy, set in Victorian England, surprises us with its playful feminist message. A domineering father puts his three daughters to work in his shoe shop while he gallivants around town. He dismisses his oldest daughter as an old maid without any future but she turns the tables on him to give him a real run for his money.  Directed by Arnold Sgan.  Performances are Friday, November 15 and Saturday, November 16, 2013 in 35below at Asheville Community Theatre and Sunday, November 17, 2013 at the Reuter Center on the campus of UNCA.  All performances begin at 2:30. Tickets are $5.00 and are available at the door.
