Farmington Players to usher in the holidays

December 3, 2016 by  

The Farmington Players are bringing the holidays in this year with family-friendly play ‘The Best Christmas Pageant Ever’, according to an article in Broadway World.

The actors will present the comedy at the playhouse on 12 Mile Road in Farmington Hills.

The play is based on Barbara Robinson’s classic book about Grace Bradley, a mother who takes over the direction of a church’s Christmas pageant when the original director literally breaks a leg. Unfortunately, Grace has to cast the Herdman children, widely known as “inventive and awful,” in her maiden effort as a director.

The Herdman kids start going to Sunday School, where church members warn Grace not to cast the kids, but they land roles in the play anyway. Not surprisingly, they introduce chaos into the production, which leads to a lot of fun for the audience.

The director of ‘The Best Christmas Pageant Ever’ is Terie Spencer, who hails from Commerce Township. She says audiences can expect to watch people having their world upside down, which enables them to rediscover, love, passion, and wonder.

The show started running yesterday, December 2, and continues until Sunday, December 18, with tickets on sale now. Performances like this can be enhanced if organizers work with poster printing companies, who can create colorful placards advertising the show and attracting potential attendees.
