Come be part of the most fun, best show ever!  The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is based on the best-selling young adult book (of the same title) written by Barbara Robinson. The Palace Playhouse is looking for boys and girls ages 8-15 and inviting families to come audition . . . and together we will create the best Christmas Pageant ever!  Presenting the annual Christmas Pageant will be filled with mayhem, comedy, and chaos as the Herdman children present their own rendition of the “traditional” Christmas story.

Director:  Geoffrey Bennett


OCTOBER 10 & 11    6-8 p.m.

Character Roles needed:

6 womenmothers playing mothers trying                   to coordinate, encourage, and                   basically pull off the “traditional”                   pageant

4 men……the local church Reverend and                  fathers that donate bathrobes to                  support the pageant while                  enduring their wives’ gossip                  during pageant rehearsal

9 girls……from the saucy to the sweet…

8 boys…..from the bold to the brassy…

Come prepared with a 30 second memorized monologue. You will also be asked to sing a Christmas carol as chosen by the director.

We encourage families to audition!  If parents participate we would love to use younger children to be in the angel choir. (Every pageant needs an angel choir!) Youngsters as young as age 5 will be used if parents are also willing to perform.

December may become busy with other concerts and recitals.  Don’t let that stop you from auditioning for our show!  Our director, Geoffrey Bennett is willing to double cast, allowing for the occasional need to be elsewhere.
