A Teddy Bear/Stuffed Animal Christmas pageant for pandemic times, with some soft and beloved friends.

Special thanks to

  • casting director and scene designer, Delaney Sherr, who was assisted by Greg Sherr and Rev. Kevin
  • René Wiley for the idea and invitation, as well as for prop wrangling
  • Jordan Thomas-Rose for the music, with an assist in this edition from Julie Tillinghast and Kate Canan
  • All those who shared their beloved stuffed companions, including Anita’s 93-year-old teddy bear, purchased by her grandmother.

The narration used in the pageant is based on Rev. Dan Harper’s adaptation of the “No-Rehearsal Christmas Pageant,” which he based on text borrowed from Rev. Jory Agate, who got it from “someone else,” . . .

Here’s the video of the pageant itself that formed the center of our early Christmas Eve service.
