Reviewer Ed Farolan
It´s refreshing to have Christmas Pageants performed outside schools or churches, and likewise, seeing children act in them.
I was in the matinee performance last December 8th and the small theatre was jampacked. I believe the show was sold out. I was with my 11-year old granddaughter and she enjoyed the show. She found it "funny and creative."
Special kudos goes to Charlotte Clayton whose role was that of a narrator and also singing in the chorus of angels. Olivia A was over-energetic, but delivered her role as the hyper-kid really well. The adults in the play delivered equally well, names we often see in the Vancouver theatre scene: Melissa Oei, Eric Regimbald, Maria J. Cruz and NGP producer Sandra Medeiros.
The show will go on till December 16th. Be sure not to miss it.
