   “The Littlest Angel” is filled with dancing, singing and is bound to get you in the Christmas spirit.
Teen 2 Teen Theatre’s production will be at 7 p.m. today and Friday, 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Paramount Theater, 128 E. Front St., Burlington.
This play is about a little boy who is living his life when all of a sudden he’s face-to-face with the Gatekeeper of Heaven (Tristan Overman). This little boy comes to be known as the Littlest Angel (Timothy Duggins). The Littlest Angel has many things to learn as a new angel, but he must also learn what his talent is so he can find his place in heaven.
The Angel of Creativity (Leanne Duggins) finds that he isn’t that good at drawing or painting, the Choirmaster (Shelby Herry) finds singing isn’t something he excels at, and the flying master (Kaylea Manners) is faced with quite the challenge trying to teach him how to fly. Even the Honesty Angel (Lillian Clark) and the Angel of Hospitality (Victoria Gaudet) find his place is not with them.
When he begins to feel defeated, the Matriarch Prophet (Keyaira Alexander) and the Understanding Angel (Abbey Hopkins) are there to help him out. Soon, the baby Jesus is born and every angel must present him with a gift or talent of theirs. But the Littlest Angel doesn’t have one.
To find out what the Littlest Angel does, attend one of the shows. Directed by Becca June Kamya, it’s family friendly and only 50 minutes long. There also will be hot chocolate, cider and baked goods for sale in the lobby. This is a fun play for all to come to after the Burlington Christmas Parade for even more holiday spirit.
Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for seniors and students 12 and under and for families of four or more. Tickets can be purchased between noon and 3 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and one hour prior to showtime. Credit card reservations can be made by calling (336) 222-TIXS.
