Last year, Minnesotans gave 18 million dollars to their favorite schools and nonprofits in just 24 hours on Give to the Max Day! This year, Central Square and other local causes need your help to raise the bar and make a difference. Visit www.GiveMN.org on November 17th to support the Minnesota organizations you care about!

“The Best Christmas Pageant Ever”

The Lighthouse Theater returns with this holiday performance about the tale of a church Christmas pageant.

The Herdmans are the worst kids in the history of the world. They lie, steal, smoke cigars, swear, and hit little kids. So no one is prepared when this outlaw family invades church one Sunday and decides to take over the annual Christmas pageant. None of the Herdmans has ever heard the Christmas story before. Their interpretation of the tale — the Wise Men are a bunch of dirty spies and Herod needs a good beating — has a lot of people up in arms. But it will make this year’s pageant the most unusual anyone has seen and, just possibly, the best one ever.
