Our local pick today is actually for a play that runs this weekend and the next at the Alban Arts Center, 65 Olde Main Street in Saint Albans. On the Worst Day of Christmas is a comedy for the Holidays.
Adam MacAfee will tell you that Appleville, is a quiet, all-American town, full of peace year round. Everything about the annual church Christmas pageant is hunky-dory, until the church on the other side of town gets a real, live camel for their Christmas festivities! Mayhem ensues as Adam’s mother, Amanda, head of the Christmas Pageant Committee, goes off the rails to put on The Twelve Days of Christmas in place of the traditional Nativity. But, it is the children who end up teaching the grown-ups the most important lesson of the holiday.
You can see this show December 9, 10 and 16, 17 at 8 PM. There will also be Sunday matinees on December 11 and 18 at 2 PM. Tickets are $15 for Adults,and $10 Children or Seniors. Group rates are available.
Visit the Alban website or call 304-721-8896 for more information. You can also look into buying season passes and ticket packages for The Alban Arts Center’s 2017 productions while you’re at it.
This is a great gift for the theater lover in your life.
