   Christmas is quickly approaching which means it’s time for festive plays.
One of the many must-see plays being performed this season is Teen 2 Teen Theatre & Video’s ” The Littlest Angel.”
“The Littlest Angel” is the story of a young boy who arrives at heaven’s gate and, upon admission into heaven, begins to have difficulty adjusting to being an angel. He just can’t learn to use his wings to fly. He sings out of tune with the heavenly choir and he disrupts the meditations. Just as he is feeling absolutely dejected and useless, a wonderful surprise occurs and brings joy to not just the Littlest Angel but to all the earth,” explained Carol Plew, one of the show’s producers.
Performances are at 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Paramount Theater, 128 E. Front St., Burlington.
“My favorite scene is the Angel of Hospitality scene. I get to put soap in her soup, then she sips it. She tastes the soap and then she gets the hiccups,” said Timothy Duggins, who plays the Littlest Angel.
“The Littlest Angel” is based on the book, by the same name, by Charles Tazewell.
“I love the scene where the Littlest Angel is showing another angel what treasures he has in his special box. You have to come see the show to find out just how special this box becomes,” Plew said.
This play is only 50 minutes and Plew said it’s perfect for all ages.
“We are performing it on the same weekend as the Burlington Christmas Parade since it is a great story to begin the Christmas season,” she added. “We will also have special treats like hot cocoa, cider, baked goods and candies available for sale during the parade and after each show in the lobby of the Paramount Theater.”
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.
