The Little Theatre of Walla Walla will hold open auditions October 8-9 for the comedy “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” by Barbara Robinson. The play will be directed by Robert G Randall and Cheryl Sutlick with assistance from Kaelyn Nelson, and produced by Barb McKinney.

The play has roles for eight adult female characters, four adult male characters, nine girls, and eight boys, plus up to twelve adult choir members to sing carols before and during the show. Auditions will be held Tuesday, October 8 and Wednesday, October 9, 6:30 p.m. for the youth roles and 7:30 p.m. for the adult roles.

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!

“The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” is produced with permission by Samuel French. Performances will be November 22, 23, 29, 30, December 1, 6, 7 and 8 at The Little Theatre of Walla Walla. For more information or questions, e-mail
