Sumner’s two performance arts groups have a slew of holiday shows for you to enjoy.

Manestage Theatre, having just wrapped up a production of “Meet Me in St. Louis,” will start performing “It’s a Wonderful Life,” based on the film by Frank Capra, from Nov. 25 to Dec. 16.

Performers then tackle “Oliver!” based on the Charles Dickens novel, Feb. 3-18.

Tickets are $25 for general audience members, $20 for seniors and students, or children 12 years old and younger for $15. Showtimes for this vary between 2 and 7 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and the performances are staged at the Sumner High School Performing Arts Center.

Over at ACT 1 Theater, performers are getting ready for “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever,” a classic by Barbara Robinson about a couple struggling to organize a church Christmas pageant with the Herdman kids, described as “the most inventively awful kids in history.”

Showtimes for this performance start Dec. 1 through Dec. 9 on Fridays at 7 p.m. or Saturdays at 2 p.m. or 7 p.m.

Coming up next is a modern rendition William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet,” starting Feb. 9 through 17, again on Fridays and Saturdays only.

General tickets are $20, but students, seniors and military members can get them for $15. Children 5 years old and younger can attend free.

All ACT 1 performances are held at the Liberty Theater at 116 W Main Avenue in Puyallup.
