The Best Little Christmas Pageant Ever
There are six kids in the Herdman family, and every one of them is bad news. The bane of teachers and students alike, Ralph, Imogene, Leroy, Claude, Ollie, and Gladys smoke, cuss, lie, steal, and purposely talk politics at the dinner table. The only reprieve for everyone is at Sunday school, where nary a Herdman has ever been seen—until Charlie Bradley lets it slip that there's free chocolate cake. Soon the Herdmans are terrorizing the church as well, and using their dirty tricks to get cast in the fast-approaching Christmas Pageant. It looks to everyone like it's going to be an unmitigated disaster, but maybe the little-loved hooligans can tell the story of Christmas in a way more fortunate children can't. Adapted from Barbara Robinson's beloved children's book by the author herself, The Best Little Christmas Pageant Ever shines a new light on a familiar story with humor and compassion.
The Jacklin Arts & Cultural Center
In 1921, the citizens of Post Falls, Idaho marveled as horses pulled two church buildings to the corner of Fourth Avenue and William Street, combining them and kindling the spirit of collaboration that fuels the structure's current resident, The Jacklin Arts & Cultural Center. Here, gothic-revival and vernacular architecture converge, brimming with more than a century of stories and earning a spot in the National Register of Historic Places. Throughout the building's past and into its present, it has persisted as a haven where the community gathers to socialize, learn, and question suspected witches. These days, the facility hosts activities that strengthen the mind and body, such as fitness classes and cooking courses. An upstairs gallery showcases the work of local artists from North Idaho and Eastern Washington as well as works by national artists, and the main-level celebration hall's raised stage and space for up to 200 seats acts as a venue for concerts, weddings, and crowd-surfing practice.
