Open Eye Figure Theatre Presents


December 6 - 22, 2019

A whimsical celebration for all ages!

Created by Michael Sommers


Lucifer is despondent — mankind has become so base and vile that he has nothing to do. Daring to visit the Godhead, he pleads for the ‘one on high’ to do something about the situation so he can do his best work. A delightful and original retelling of the Mystery Plays and the Second Shepherds’s Play, the stage fills with angels and devils, Mary and Joseph, the shepherds, and Fluffsie the lamb. Accompanied by a community chorus and Open Eye’s joyful house band, THE HOLIDAY PAGEANT is a delightful celebration for the season!
