The Best Christmas Pageant Ever | Provision Theater Company | Holiday Shows, Theater & Performance | Chicago Reader
This is a past event.
When: Wednesdays, Saturdays, Sundays. Continues through Dec. 22 2010
Price: $10-$15
This energetic, rough-hewn show lives up the spirit if not the letter of Barbara Robinson's 1972 comic children's tale, about a church pageant that goes awry when six of the rowdiest kids in town join in. The performances are uneven, ranging from wooden to pretty good, and the overall staging reminded me of slightly above-average community theater. But the cast is packed with child performers who clearly love the chance to caper across the stage, and a positive, unapologetically Christian holiday message prevails. --Jack Helbig
