Ruston Community Theatre will hold auditions this weekend for the upcoming show, “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever,” directed by Tami Alexander and sponsored by Century Next Bank.
This beloved Christmas show has become a staple for many communities, and RCT hopes to welcome a new wave of children into this holiday tradition.
The play is written by Barbara Robinson based on her best-selling young adult book. This show will be presented along with a Christmas concert of carol medleys and holidays favorites lead by Dee Alexander.
The show will take place Nov. 30 through Dec. 3.
In this comedic Christmas classic, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids–probably the most inventively awful kids in history. Mayhem – and fun – ensue when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head on.
There are plenty of roles for adults and children alike:
• FATHER (Bob Bradley)
• MOTHER (Grace Bradley)

• CHARLIE BRADLEY
• RALPH HERDMAN
• IMOGENE HERDMAN
• LEROY HERDMAN

• ALICE WENDLEKEN
• MRS. ARMSTRONG
• MRS. SLOCUM
• MRS. CLARK
• MRS. CLAUSING

The audition dates are Sept. 30 at 10 a.m. and Oct. 1 at 2 p.m. at The Meeting and Rehearsal Center (MARC) of RCT, 504 E Georgia Ave. in Ruston.
Auditions are open to ages 7 and up.
