Well, you asked, and this is all I've managed to find....
Here is the entire cast of the Best Christmas Pageant Ever!
(Including Worker Bee, Baby Bee, and me!!!)
I played Mrs. McCarthy (although one night on stage I accidentally called myself Mrs. McCartney). She is one of the church ladies. If you've ever seen the play, she is the one who thinks Imogene Herdman's cigar smoke in the ladies room is actually a fire. So every night I got to walk on stage sniffing the air, then walk right up front and yell, "Fire! There's a fire!" And then all kinds of chaos breaks out. (I was almost knocked down one night when some running children decided it would be more fun to somersault their way off stage.)
Worker Bee played Bob Bradley, the father of the narrator, Beth, and the husband of the pageant director, Grace. He had the best line, said over and over, "Do I have to go?" My friends all said he was just playing himself! Well....sort of.....
And Baby Bee was in the angel choir. She didn't have any lines, but she sang beautifully. Although, the girl who played Maxine - the narrator of the church production of the pageant in the play - hmmmm.....that gets a bit complicated - had to go to a couple of basketball tournaments. The director asked Kiley to step in and play her part! That was quite exciting for us and her.
So, I highly recommend that if you have ever had the slightest desire to appear on stage in a play, that you go for it! It was a wonderful experience and I would love to do it again! And, I even eventually got all my lines memorized! Thanks Worker Bee for helping me with that. (And thanks Baby Bee for keeping it under your hat that you heard me practicing them every morning in the shower!)
The next show is South Pacific....
am I brave enough to audition???
(And am I crazy enough to do this again during the school year?)
