A Very Merry (Unauthorized) Children's Scientology Pageant
December 24, 2009 10:45 AM   Subscribe

Witness the spectacle as Chicago's A Red Orchid Theater presents A Very Merry (Unauthorized) Children's Scientology Pageant, through January 17, 2010. It's time to celebrate, it's time to open up your eyes. Critics agree - it's a hit!

"It's much like the traditional yuletide pageant of yore...only with aliens".

Awesome. I won't be getting to Chi-town by then but hope the best bits are posted online. It would be extra funny if the CoS brought more publicity to them by filing suits and cease-and-desist motions.

I saw this in Venice Beach several years ago; it was fun. No free publicity from the Scientologists back then, though.

XENU DOES NOT APPROVE.

This is actually the 4th or 5th production of the show, it's been done at least in DC, Philadelphia & LA; so the cult is well aware of it. I expect they'll do a pro-forma protest, but with everything crashing down around their ears like it is I don't think they have time for much more than that.

Does Tom Cruise uses his witchcraft to make a Merry Xenumas for all?
