Christmas joy, hilarity and a touching moral message are all hallmarks of a big show coming to town soon through the Stettler Variety Showcase.
“The Best Little Newfoundland Christmas Pageant Ever” will be the second show in this season’s entertainment menu said Rose Fenske, spokesperson, at The Stettler Independent office Nov. 22.
She said this family-friendly holiday show is a comedy with an inspirational message about the true meaning of Christmas. “It’s very funny,” said Fenske.
The story revolves around a traditional Christmas pageant featuring a coordinator who doesn’t really know what’s going on who is then joined by two kids who know nothing about Christmas pageants but want to get involved.
“The seemingly dull task of directing the annual church Christmas Pageant falls to Grace O’Brien when the organizer (Helen Armstrong) hits a moose with her car,” stated Whizgiggling’s Facebook page. “However, this year the Herdmans (the worst kids in the history of the entire universe) show up for the auditions! What should be one of the worst pageants, turns out to the best as we all discover and rediscover the true meaning of Christmas.”
Not only is the show full of comedy, it’s also full of music.
Fenske said the afternoon 2 p.m. matinee is sold out, but tickets are still available for the evening performance. Tickets are available at The Wish Kitchen & Gift (4806-50 Street) and some may be available at the door. The evening performance starts at 7 p.m.
The production will be staged by Whizgiggling Productions, who are currently staging this show in Camrose. Video clips are available on YouTube, and more information is available at www.facebook.com/whizgigglingproductions.
Tickets for “The Best Little Newfoundland Christmas Pageant Ever” are $25 per person, students $10.
