9: Seattle Public Theater at the Bathhouse: The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

Nine down. Forty six to go.

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever has been a Seattle Public Theater tradition for over a decade. Last Sunday afternoon the large and diverse cast of adults and kids were incredibly energetic and appealing, and the full house (with, of course, lots of children in attendance) clearly loved the show. Our four-year-old grandson spent all 55 minutes of the production in rapt attention, complaining only at the end that it was over too soon.

SPT seeks to produce theater that is intimate, engaging, emotionally powerful and affordable to everyone. SPT's youth program serves a large number of young people in our community with year-round productions, technical training classes and performance opportunities. Every show is cast from those who register, guaranteeing roles for all the young actors and providing them wonderful opportunities for development through ensemble work.

By the way, the show got off to a fun start for me when the woman at will-call turned out to be a theater friend from college. She volunteers her time as house manager, serves on the SPT Board, and is an enthusiastic supporter of Seattle Public Theater – one of the countless volunteers who help keep our arts organizations thriving.

The Grandson was anxious to be
 first in the theater.
