A VERY MERRY UNAUTHORIZED CHILDREN’S SCIENTOLOGY PAGEANTby Kyle Jarrow and Alex Timbers
American Stage "After Hours" Series Reading
December 9 thru 22
"A breezy one-hour show that is equal parts adorable and creepy, hilarious and unsettling, making it way more compelling than your average holiday entertainment."
American Stage Theatre Company continues its "After Hours" series with the holiday musical spectacular A Very Merry Unauthorized Children's Scientology Pageant, in repertory with David Sedaris' The Santaland Diaries, December 9 thru 22.
A Very Merry Unauthorized Children's Scientology Pageant begins with six children gathering on a cold winter night to rejoice in telling the story of L. Ron Hubbard during their holiday pageant. A narrator notes, "Today we relate the life of L. Ron Hubbard: Teacher, author, explorer, atomic physicist, nautical engineer, choreographer, horticulturist and father of Scientology!" And so begins what Variety called, “A breezy one-hour show that is equal parts adorable and creepy, hilarious and unsettling, making it way more compelling than your average holiday entertainment.” Learn about Scientology and its creator in musical form, including special appearances by many of the churches greatest practitioners as puppets and the possible arrival of the almighty Xenu himself. See why the president of the Church of Scientology tried to shut this play down (before we get closed down).
