Lived in Smyrna eight years and had never gone to this theater. Wow. What a jewel we have in Smyrna. I will be attending all performances now. Truly top notch. Watch out TPAC.

I came to the show last night, and it was superb. Y'all really did quite an amazing job! Now I just have to wait for Fiddler on the Roof.

I went to see The Giver last night at Springhouse Theatre. Okay let me start by saying I have never read this book. I loved this play! There were times that I felt like there was no one else in the theater but me. I laughed and I cried and I audibly gasped. I was very surprised that I was so incredibly pulled in to this sameness world! Great job!

THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER
by Barbara Robinson

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is the story of how what should have been a disaster turns into a truly beautiful thing. It is the story of how “outsiders” who don't really understand what Christmas means and how it is “supposed to be done” intrude on the annual church Christmas Pageant. In their fresh, simple, literal embracement of the story, they unknowingly cause the “insiders” to discover that perhaps they were the ones who really didn't understand. This fast-paced evening will provide plenty of laughs along the way, while leaving you with a heart full of new perspective for this truly holy season.

“The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com
