The Best Christmas Pageant Ever
The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is a hilarious Christmas tale about a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas Pageant while faced with casting the Herdman kids, probably the most inventively awful kids in history. You won't believe the mayhem, and the fun, when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head-on! This delightful comedy is adapted from the best-selling book and the only story ever to run twice in McCall's Magazine.
Tickets can be purchased at the main branch of the Cromaine Library.
More About Hartland Music Hall
The Hartland Music Hall — one of the oldest buildings in Livingston County — serves as a venue for concerts, plays, weddings, church services and community events. Owned by the Hartland School District, the facility is available for rent through Hartland Community Education.
The building was originally built in 1858 by members of the First Congregational Church. But by the 1920s it had fallen into disrepair and was purchased by local philanthropist John Robert Crouse Sr., who renovated the building and donated it to the community as part of the Hartland Area Project.
Emil Lorch, dean of the University of Michigan School of Architecture, oversaw the conversion in 1931 that included adding column porticoes and a Kilden pipe organ, according the community education website.
The hall was added to the State Register of Historic Sites in 1980 and famously hosts an annual performance of Handel's Messiah each December.
