Village Square Theatre in Lexington will present The Best Christmas Pageant Ever! just in time for the holidays on December 8–17.

This fun and touching production, based on Barbara Robinson’s book, is a treat for the whole family that will delight and inspire young and old alike.

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever! is a huge holiday spectacle with a cast of eight adult actors and 75 young performers. The youth actors are double cast to allow the maximum number of children to perform.

The Herdman’s, known as the worst kids in town, and an entire congregation butt heads in this not-so-traditional Christmas Pageant. Mayhem, merriment, and the true meaning of the holidays are the theme of this chaotic Christmas classic.

The role of Grace Bradley, reluctant and unwilling pageant director, is played by Faith Lirosi, while the role of her long-suffering husband, Bob, is shared by Dr. David Stallard and VST newcomer, Nick Hallman.

The Bradley children are played by Taylor Marks and Sara Norton as Beth, the narrator of the story, and Charlie Godfrey and Nathan Stallard as Charlie.

The Herdman’s are played by Matthew Harman and Christopher Unumb (Ralph), London Saunders and Annsyn Feinberg (Imogene), Evan DeMasi and Ayden Higgingbottom ( Leroy), Baylee Blanks and Lexi Davis ( Claude), Emily Marks and Addison Cook (Ollie) and Taylor Peterson and Taylor Davis (Gladys).

Rounding out the cast are the church ladies, a harried minister, firemen, shepherds, choir kids, and, of course, baby angels.

The show, directed by Debi Young, will be performed December 8, 9, 15, and 16 at 7:30 p.m.; December 9 at 10 a.m.; and December 10, 16, and 17 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets may be purchased online at www.vil lagesquaretheatre.com or by calling the box office at 803-359-1436, or in person at the box office Monday Friday, 4:30-6:30 p.m.

Village Square Theatre is located at 105 Caughman Road, Lexington.
