Thank you, Wilkes Playmakers, for getting my Christmas season off to such a great start. Your production of “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” was a joy to watch. Its mixture of mirth, message and Messiah reminds us that we should love the unlovable, that Jesus is the reason for the season and that God’s grace and sense of humor abound in ways and in places we sometimes least expect.
Thank you to all who made this production happen and the holiday cheer it offered. A special shout out to Jordan Holleman, who as “Gladys Herdman” stole the show as the Angel of the Lord. Yes, indeed, “Unto us a child is born.”
