Curtain 440 is closing out the year with two fun family productions for the holidays. First up on December 17-18 at 7:30pm and the 19th at 2pm will be The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. Director Angela Miloro-Hansen is stepping into the role of a mom who suddenly is in charge of producing the church Christmas pageant. Once the Herdman children join in, there is no chance of a silent night. Maggie Boyd (10, Ledgemont Elementary) plays boisterous Gladys who portrays the Angel of the Lord. She is looking forward to the applause on opening night. “I am very passionate about theatre. It’s basically my life. Shazam!”
December 20 and 21 at 8pm the Curtain 440 Repertory Group will perform A Christmas Carol. This auditioned group presents six productions a year. For many it is their first experience with this classic story. Cara Stone/ Scrooge (17, Berkshire HS) and Molly Kessler/Marley (14, homeschool) feel theater is an outlet that allows creativity and is enjoyable. “It’s a unique and beautiful way to tell a story,“ Molly says. “I really enjoy connecting with audiences, and this role is especially exciting as a new sort of character to me.” Cara added “It’s a fun way to escape reality when the world seems to be burning around me.” The excitement of being in front of audiences after an extended time away has the whole group working hard.
Both productions will be at the Bond Building in Century Village, 14653 East Park St. in Burton. Tickets range from $8 to $12 and can be purchased at the door or online at www.curtain440.com/Tickets.
