The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

Imagine Bébé’s kids in a school holiday play, and you’ve got a good idea of The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. Grace Bradley steps in at the last minute to direct the school play after the original director conveniently breaks her leg. Not only is Grace racing against the clock to get everything done, she’s faced with the Herdman kids, a bunch of rowdy, mean, devious kids who’ve decided they want to be in the pageant this year. Can she make little angels out of them? Or will this turn out to be the Christmas pageant from hell? Find out at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays through December 20, with additional shows 2 p.m. December 14, and 7:30 p.m. December 18. Country Playhouse, 12802 Queensbury Lane. For information, call 713-467-4497 or visit www.countryplayhouse.org. $12 to $20.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sun., Dec. 14, 2 p.m.; Thu., Dec. 18, 7:30 p.m. Starts: Dec. 5. Continues through Dec. 20, 2008
