The Unrehearsed Christmas Pageant
December 14th at 4:30 PM
Every Church Christmas pageant shares these characteristics: there is a rush of preparation over three to four weeks, high levels of anxiety to get the performance organized, the effort to get young children to learn a few lines of dialogue and deliver them on cue and the effort to put the performance on with a minimum of mistakes. There is one more characteristic of Church Christmas Pageants. Despite the best efforts of the organizers the result is a somewhat chaotic presentation of the Christmas Story. However, no one really minds that because their children are part of that chaotic presentation.
The Unrehearsed Christmas pageant also produces a somewhat chaotic presentation of the Christmas story but it substitutes a lot of fun for the anxiety and stress usually accompanying a pageant. Instead of weeks of preparation, everyone arrives the night of the performance. They select a costume as a shepherd or sheep, a star or an angel, a wise person, a cow, a donkey, or an innkeeper and spouse. A narrator reads the Christmas story while the costumed participants act out this old and wonderful story. Christmas songs are sung and the story is retold to a new generation. ‘Kids’ of all ages are invited to get dressed and participate. Refreshments are then shared in the fellowship hall.
The Unrehearsed Christmas Pageant will be held on Sunday, December 14th at 4:30 PM at Trinity United Methodist Church, 2084 Wilson Pike. Please come and be a part of this joyful event and bring a friend or two to join in the fun.
