The Best Little Newfoundland Christmas Pageant... Ever!
EDMONTON –Whizgiggling Productions, in cooperation with Spirit of Newfoundland Productions, is thrilled to be bringing “The Best Little Newfoundland Christmas Pageant...Ever!” to Edmonton and beyond. Celebrating our 11th year! We are taking an innovative approach to bring this cherished story right to you!
The Best Little Newfoundland Christmas Pageant....Ever!’ was Whizgiggling Productions’ inaugural show and it has rapidly become a treasured festive smash. Whizgiggling is Newfoundland lingo meaning: “to act silly and foolish”, and that is just what we will continue to do. “’The Best Little Newfoundland Christmas Pageant....Ever!’ is a raucous family Christmas show that has become an annual institution in St. John’s. With so many Newfoundlanders unable to make it home for the holidays, we thought it was time to bring a bit of home to them with this “Rock” classic.” – Cheryl Jameson, Producer
NOT YOUR ORDINARY CHRISTMAS. NOT YOUR ORDINARY PAGEANT....
The Best Little Newfoundland Christmas Pageant....Ever! is seemingly a dull task for Mrs. O’Brien, who has been put in charge when the original leader, Mrs. Armstrong, hits a moose with her car. What could be so hard? It’s always the same Mary and Joseph and it’s always the same Christmas carols...but no one was expecting the Herdmans to show up for the auditions!!! The Herdmans are “the worst kids in the world” who don’t know anything about Christmas, beyond the hamper they get every year, and have only shown up because they heard there were free refreshments. What has the potential to be the worst Pageant ever turns out to be the best one as everyone learns the true meaning of Christmas.
This Christmas is going to be a little different. Making it home could be a tall order. Each year our devoted fans line up, no matter the weather, to warm themselves with laughter, song and cheer. There is no way we could leave them out in the cold. This time, however, you can get Christmas delivered. Gather round with your family, pour yourself some holiday spirit, tune in and feast your senses on a brand new take on a trusted favourite. We want to share the joy of the season with you and yours from the comfort of your home, in a way you’ve never experienced before. Join us and let the yuletide come ashore this season.
Featuring: Sheldon Elter, Kayla Gorman, Natalie Czar Gummer, Cheryl Jameson, Cody Porter & Lindsey Walker Musical Director: Vicky Berg Written by: Barbara Robinson Adapted by: Petrina Bromley & Aiden Flynn.
