Don't Miss the Christmas Pageant!
Sunday, December 15
11:15 AM Discovery Eucharist in All Saints' Hall
Third Grade only: Stage cast
The Third Grade Cast acts on stage and narrates the Pageant story. We will draw names for each of the different roles for the third grade cast, but all third graders who register are able to participate as part of the cast. If your third grader would prefer to be part of the choir only, you may indicate that on the registration and he or she will then be part of the Pageant Ensemble. Third grade cast members must be present the entire time for all three of the following rehearsals. If your third grader cannot commit to all three rehearsals in their entirety, he/she will be asked to participate in the Pageant Ensemble.
Rehearsal dates and times:
- Wednesday, December 4, 5:30 - 6:30 PM (parts assigned, script read through)
- Sunday, December 8, 12:30 - 1:45 PM (lunch included; blocking and costumes)
- Saturday, December 14, 9:45 - 11:30 AM (dress and sound rehearsal)
Third graders are also invited to attend the three music rehearsals listed below so that they are familiar with the music of the service. Music Rehearsals: Wednesday, December 4 (5:00 - 5:30 PM), Sunday, December 8 (12:00 - 12:30 PM), Wednesday, December 11 (5:00 - 5:30 PM).
4-year-olds through Second Graders: PAGEANT Ensemble
All children who are currently in a 4-year-old through second grade Sunday School class may register to be part of the Pageant Ensemble. They sing a few simple refrains while dressed as shepherds, angels and sheep. If your child is younger than a 4-year-old Sunday School class, we will look forward to having him or her participate in the years to come!
We provide: shepherd tunics and headdresses; angel wings and halos (wear a man's white dress shirt backwards); and a very limited number of sheep costumes. The children need to attend at least two of three music rehearsals in All Saints' Hall. It would be wonderful if your children could attend all three practices so they know the songs:
Wednesday, December 4, 5:00 - 5:30 PM
Sunday, December 8, 12:00 - 12:30 PM
Wednesday, December 11, 5:00 - 5:30 PM
*In addition to two music rehearsals, all pageant participants, along with a parent, are asked to attend rehearsal on Saturday, December 15 from 11:00 to 11:30 AM to go over seating and to receive costumes.
If your child is currently participating in the St. Nicholas Choir and wants to participate in the Pageant, please register your child!
A parent from each participating family is asked to help with the Christmas Pageant in some way (EXCEPT for parents of the third grade Stage Cast; these parents are exempt, even if they have a younger child in the pageant). When you register your 4-year-old through 2nd grader, you will be asked to complete your first and second choice of a parent volunteer role. Descriptions of all volunteer roles are listed at the bottom of the registration.
Please make sure the email that you enter on the registration is your primary email that you check regularly, as all communication regarding the Pageant will be sent there. We cannot host the Christmas Pageant without all of our parent volunteers, so we thank you in advance for your cheerful assistance!
Click the appropriate link(s) below to register your child(ren) for the Pageant. We are excited to have everyone participate!
Registration opens November 3.
