The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

Beth Bradley’s church’s Christmas pageant is predictable every year -- the angel choir wears too much lipstick, the shepherds are all in their father’s bathrobes, the minister’s son is permanently cast in the role of Joseph -- hardly “four-star entertainment.” But when seasoned and authoritative pageant director Mrs. Armstrong breaks her leg, it is up to Beth’s inexperienced mother Grace to step in.

Based on the cherished 2003 movie, Elf – The Musical, tells the story of Buddy, a human accidentally transported to the North Pole as a baby.

This warm-hearted Broadway musical is sure to make all Houstonians embrace their inner Elf.

It's A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play @ Stageworks Theatre

What better way to ring in the holiday season than with Frank Capra’s classic film brought to life as a 1946 radio broadcast, complete with vintage commercials and a live foley (sound effects) artist. George Bailey, a man with all the right stuff except luck, takes stock of his life one fateful Christmas Eve. His feckless guardian angel Clarence shows him that success can be measured in many ways, leading to an ending warmer than a hot mug of cocoa on a cold winter’s night. Fun for the whole family starting November 29 - December 22, 2019!
