2017 Christmas Pageant | December 10 AT 3 PM

Plans are underway for St. Mary's annual Christmas pageant, and we are seeking all interested children and parents! All children from the Atrium to Grade 5 are welcome to be in our cast.
There are a variety of both speaking and non-speaking roles (of the traditional Nativity type). If you want to participate, here are important dates to keep in mind:
Sunday, November 26th & December 3rd: Costume pick-up after 10 A.M. service in Beyer Auditorium
Thursday, December 7th: Speaking Parts Rehearsal at St. Mary's 6:30-7:30 P.M. IN THE YOUTH ROOM

Saturday, December 9th: Dress Rehearsal at St. Mary's 10:00 A.M. – Noon
Sunday, December 10: Christmas Pageant in Beyer Auditorium 3:00 P.M. Children report at 2:30 P.M.

We are also looking for parents who are willing to help in any capacity. If you are willing to herd sheep at rehearsals, help kids remember when to enter/exit, hand out props...please let us know. Here's where we most need some volunteers:
• Post-pageant reception: We will need an organizer and volunteers to contribute refreshments
• Costumes: Need one person to help with sorting, bagging, handing out, re-hanging after pageant (Barb and Margaret will be there to help you as well!)
• Herders/Stagehands: Need about 4-5 parents during the pageant and rehearsals to help the kids with entrance cues, lines, etc.
• Prop Master: Need one person who would be responsible for keeping track of props, handing them to the right kids, gathering them back at the end of the rehearsals/pageant.
• Photographer: One person to take pictures on the pageant day, beforehand of the various groupings (angels, shepherds, sheep, holy family, wise men) and during the pageant and reception. Questions?
