THE BEST BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER
I started out thinking I had really wandered into a church production, a throw back to the 50's attitudinally and visually and aurally. This was going to be a long hour and fifteen minutes. I left feeling as though my life had passed before my eyes, and did it need to go by so quickly.
At the time of this writing, the moment has passed, the show being played only from December 7th through the 11th. I still wanted to get on record saying that Stageworks Fresno continues to do exemplary work and its artistic director, directors, vocal coaches, technicians, as well as the talent being drawn to this company, are soooo worth (sorry about the vernacularism) our time, effort and expenditure.
Please see the on-air review for more review. It may be PWI!!!
BTW, Ashley Taylor and Patricia Hoffman could set the standard for what one must expect for the "big time". Sorry if you missed it.
