The 2017 Christmas Show: Home for the Holidays

An AMT Original Show

Nov 1 – Dec 30, 2017

Hear some of your favorite sacred and secular holiday songs and the outstanding musical arrangements of the AMT Orchestra. Witness the new set designs, fresh color palette, and a gorgeous array of new costumes, designed exclusively for AMT.

Outside, you’ll be greeted with cheery adornments of candy cane wraps, green-lit garland swags, and natural wreaths tied with bright red bows. Inside, the festive decor continues, including the larger-than-life Christmas lobby featuring three Christmas trees exquisitely designed for AMT. Then, as you make your way into the theatre, our ushers will be handing out a special holiday gift, just for the kids! So get ready to capture all the merriment with lots of family photo ops – before, during, and after the show – because the most joyous of holiday traditions is back!

KEYSTONE THEATRICS – THE PLAYHOUSE AT ALLENBERRY presents

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

Dec 1 – 17, 2017

The Herdmans are the worst kids in the history of the world–so when they crash Sunday school and demand parts in the Christmas pageant, the whole town panics. There’s not supposed to be biting or cigar-smoking in Bethlehem, and while these kids have never even heard the Christmas story, they definitely have rewrites! Soon everyone from the terrified pint-sized shepherds to the furious church ladies are calling for reluctant director Grace Bradley to cancel the whole thing. It’s up to Bradley and the Reverend to help their community see the Christmas story and the Herdman kids through new eyes in this buoyant musical adaptation of the funny and touching holiday classic. Silent night? Not a chance. But sometimes a little joyful noise is just right for Christmas.

Suggested Ages – This family-friendly show is suitable for all ages.
