Every year the Dorset Players presents a holiday play. This year they are offering The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. We had the pleasure of talking with the director Kevin O’Toole and three cast members, Patrick Zilkha (Bob Bradley) and his son, George (Ollie Herdman), and Livia Barclay (Beth Bradley). Besides learning about the play, we also found out more about community theatre and what it offers those who take part, no matter their age or the part they play in the productions.
The performances at the Dorset Playhouse are Fridays, December 4 and 11 at 7:30 pm and Saturdays and Sundays, December 5 and 12 and December 6 and 13 at 2 pm. The show lasts about an hour. Based on the delightful interview we had with the director and actors, it should not be missed. It sounds like a wonderful way to start the holiday season.
