In the holiday spirit

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, produced by ShenanArts and the Shenandoah Valley Governor’s School, is being offered on Dec. 10, Dec. 11 and Dec. 18 at 7 p.m., Dec. 12 and Dec. 18 at 3 p.m.

The production is directed by Hannah Woodrum and Matthew Riley, senior theatre students at the Shenandoah Valley Governor’s School, as their senior community service project. Both Woodrum and Riley are long-time participants in ShenanArts’ shows since they were children, and designed this project to give back to other children and the organization that taught them so much.

Harmony Shaver, also a senior SVGS student and ShenanArts veteran, stage manages the production. All funds raised will be earmarked for scholarships for children to participate in future ShenanArts productions and classes.
Ticket prices are $10 for adults and $7 for children. Tickets may be purchased in advance at or at the door, one hour prior to curtain times.

All performances are at ShenanArts at the nTelos Theatre, Gypsy Hill Place, 300 Churchville Ave., Staunton.
