The Best Christmas Pageant Ever follows the outrageous shenanigans of the Herdman siblings, or "the worst kids in the history of the world."¯ This is a hilarious yet heartwarming tale involving the Three Wise Men, a ham, scared shepherds, and six rowdy, misfit children who volunteer to star in their town's Sunday school Christmas pageant, and end up teaching the town the true meaning of Christmas.



Auditions are Wednesday, October 23rd and Thursday, the 24th from 4:00-5:30 for children six to ten years old, and 6:00-7:30 for older children and adults.

You only need to come on one of those days. Please arrive promptly at the start of the audition time, and plan to stay for the entire 90 minutes, though some people may be finished earlier.

Introduction to T'ai Chi Chu'an

Date: Thursday, October 31, 2019
Time: 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

T'ai Chi is a sequence of precise body movements done slowly and without effort that balance the flow of energy within the body. At once a moving form of meditation, a dynamic system of exercise to improve health, and an introduction to the basics of self-defense, T'ai Chi Chu'an has been practiced daily in China by millions for millennia. It requires no special clothes or equipment, keeps you on your feet, takes only a few minutes each day, and can be learned at any age.



Regular practitioners of T'ai Chi are rewarded with energy and focus and they age with vitality and grace. Instructor Alan Erdossy has 45 years of experience teaching at businesses, including art, ballet, and exercise studios throughout the Northeast.

This six-week introductory class will be one hour, however, participants who are repeating the introduction may stay for another half hour to begin exploring the second set of T'ai Chi. Registration is $65 for six weeks. To register call or email Alan at 802.223.5125 or 802.249.2902 (cell) or alanerdossy@gmail.com.
