"Best Christmas Pageant Ever" at Knoxville Children's Theatre

Date(s):  November 30 - December 16, 2018
Location:  Knoxville, TN

KNOXVILLE, TN — Knoxville Children’s Theatre, in partnership with Clayton Foundation, presents 16 live performances of “Best Christmas Pageant Ever,” based on the classic novel by Barbara Robinson.

In this hilarious Christmas classic, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids: probably the most inventively awful kids in history. You won't believe the mayhem — and the fun — when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head on.

This delightful comedy is adapted from the best-selling book and has become a holiday staple for theater audiences everywhere, featuring lots of laughs for audiences of all ages.

The live stage musical will be performed Nov. 30 through Dec. 16. Performances are Thursdays and Fridays at 7 p.m.; Saturdays at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m.; and Sundays at 3 p.m.

The play is performed by 22 young actors, from ages 9 to 16. Seven actors are making their KCT debuts Diego Almeida, Meredith Harper, Beth King, Chloe Porter, Emmi Robbins, Graham Sexton, Mabry Grace Shields and Grant Walker. The rest of the cast includes KCT veterans Eason Bullard, Cooper Delamain, Jayden Ferguson, Miley Jenkins, Tripp Keeton, Lena Kennedy, Bray Krumenacker, Millie Lovett, Mateo Mejia, Olivia Rhea, Presley Rule, Lily Segars, Braxxton Sommers and Anna Kate Stanley.

Derrick Washington, Jr., a senior at STEM Academy directs the production. STEM Academy student Quintin Rhodes serves as the Stage Manager.
