Fairmont State's Academy for the Arts and Town & Gown Players present two holiday productions
Fairmont State University Town and Gown Players and the Academy for the Arts present Jolly Holiday, A Broadway Christmas Revue, and The Best Christmas Pageant Ever (December 8-10, 2022) in the Wallman Hall Theatre on the campus of Fairmont State. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evening performances begin at 7:30 pm, and a Sunday matinee starts at 2:00 pm. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased online at fairmontstate.edu/boxoffice
The Fairmont State Town and Gown Players' production of the holiday classic, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, written by Barbara Robinson and directed by Troy Snyder, tells the story of the bullying, cigar-smoking Herdman kids. The Herdmans volunteer to star in their town's Sunday school Christmas pageant and collide with the Christmas story head-on; the result will either be the most disastrous Christmas Pageant ever or the best!
The Academy for the Arts presents the delightful and entertaining Christmas musical revue Jolly Holiday, A Broadway Christmas Revue. Jolly Holiday features musical theatre performances from some of the most popular Broadway Christmas productions. They are performed by members of the Academy for The Arts and Academy Youth Theatre Company. Jolly Holiday is directed by Elizabeth Wotring-Nelson and Desiree Sowards. Both productions are produced by Leigh Anne Riley.
Both performances will run consecutively each evening, for the matinee performance and two school-day performances.
