Christmas shines at Performing Arts Center

·1 min read

Dec. 4—The Henderson County Performing Arts Center opened its infamous, heartwarming and hilarious "Best Christmas Pageant Ever" Dec. 2. Don't worry, there are still a host of additional performances at 2 p.m. Dec. 4 and 5 and 7 p.m. Dec. 9, 10 and 11.

Don't miss this holiday HCPAC favorite. This year's performance features a cast of more than 30 actors. The show is directed by Shaydi Clary.

The multi-generational cast shined with heart throughout the performance that is sure to bring laughs, dropped jaws and a few tears.

The Herdmann's are rowdy, scrappy and unrefined, when these underprivileged kids hear of free treats at church they join in the fun. They come with an empty belly but leave church with a full heart.

The children of this cast shine, displaying such expressive, hilarious and compassionate performances, all while showing character depth of much older actors.

Clary said the cast had to take breaks from laughing during rehearsals.

To purchase tickets please visit Adults are $15 and students are $5. This year's production is sponsored by Arabella Assisted Living.
