   Alamance Children’s Theatre’s biennial holiday production, “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever,” is returning to the Paramount Theater, 128 E. Front St., Burlington. Showtimes are 7 p.m. Dec. 4- 6 and 2 p.m. Dec. 6-7, 2014.
The play is adapted from the children’s book by Barbara Robinson and tells the story of the Herdman family, who are known as troublemakers in the town. They find themselves in the middle of the annual church play and everyone in the church thinks it’s going to be horrible. Everyone, that is, but Grace Bradley (Mikaela Mock), the director of the play, who coaches the kids from troublemakers into some of the main people in the pageant.
The cast is made up of 39 actors from Alamance Children’s Theatre and is directed by Wayne Leonard. Some have performed in plays previously, while others are experiencing their first performance.
Tickets range from $6 to $8 and can be purchased between noon and 3 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays at the Paramount box office. Credit card reservations can be made by calling (336) 222-TIXS. For more details on Alamance Children’s Theatre, visit www.alamancechildrens
