Julia Exline of says:
“With a fun plot and energetic performances, I would take the family to The Best Christmas Pageant Ever for a dose of Christmas spirit — and with proceeds going towards such a good cause, that makes it all the merrier. Wonderfully directed by Beth Whitehead, who manages to inspire great performances from a large cast – Jody Lynn Parker was fantastic as the tough Imogene Herdman, and Kyleigh Friel greatly entertaining as her wild sister, Gladys. Jennifer Owens does a fine job as the town goody-goody Alice Wendleken…the “Baby Angels,” and are perhaps the cutest thing you will see this season.” Full Review


Bob Ashby of  says:
“Besides being a very enjoyable show for performers and audience, the production had a serious purpose, as half the net proceeds from the production plus the concession revenue are being donated to The Young Hearts, a local cancer charity.” Full Review
