The Holiday Pageant
Presented by Open Eye Figure Theatre
December 11 – 21, 2015 Written and directed by Michael Sommers
Composed and arranged by Victor Zupanc
Lucifer is despondent — mankind has become so base and vile that he has nothing to do. Daring to visit the Godhead, he pleads for the ‘one on high’ to do something about the situation so he can do his best work. A delightful and original retelling of the Mystery Plays and the Second Shepherds’s Play, the stage fills with angels and devils, Mary and Joseph, the shepherds, and Fluffsie the lamb.
Accompanied with a community chorus and Open Eye’s house band, this year’s version will feature the original cast that played together from 2001- 2007. Look for Kevin Kling as Joseph and the Shepherd Mak, Sarah Agnew doubling as the littlest angel and Lucifer’s minion. Luverne Seifert is the lovelorn shepherd, and Sommers himself is Lucifer. Add in the next generation of performers with Liz Schachterle as Mary and Noah Sommers Haas as the shepherd boy, and Maren Ward showing up as Father Winter, and you will delight in a fresh and authentic celebration for the season complete with Christmas cookies for the entire audience.
