Description & Details
Openings are still available for children of all ages for one of the two Christmas Story pageant casts. Small children will participate with their parents present on-site.
The Christmas Story is one of Toronto’s oldest and best-loved holiday traditions. First staged here in 1938, this pageant began in St.
Martin-in-the-Fields church in London, England in 1928. Queen Elizabeth and her sister Margaret were taken to see it when they were little girls.
The story of the Nativity is told through a series of narrated scenes linked by beautiful organ music and carols from an unseen choir.
Close to 100 volunteers, including babies who take turns playing the role of baby Jesus, perform in one of two casts. The Church of the Holy Trinity, a 171year-
old architectural treasure, brings its own charm to the presentation.
There are only 5 rehearsals required.
