Come kick off your holiday season with this production by The Youth Company and The Junior Company with a special performance of "The Manger" by The Little Company. Bring family and friends and let's celebrate together!
Synopsis: Appleville is a small, peaceful town, but you sure wouldn’t know it around Christmastime! Stress and distress run high each year for Amanda MacAfee, director of her church’s annual Christmas pageant, as the OTHER church in town puts on their ever-expanding Christmas pageant with real animals, amazing costumes, and even flying angels. Knowing she will never beat them at the same old game, Amanda decides this year will be different! Instead of telling the traditional story of the manger and the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem, she will instead present a reenactment of the Twelve Days of Christmas, complete with plenty of poultry... and an unlimited potential for disaster! Thankfully, her son Adam, wise beyond his years, is making a traditionally simple and beautiful plan of his own (just in case!) with the help of his friends. While leaping lords, dancing ladies, and Mrs. McIlhaney — a real cow — wait in the wings, Adam and his friends lead Amanda and all of Appleville back to the true reason the angels sang that Christmas night so long ago.
