Storyline

A rural small-town counts itself lucky when famous, temporarily unemployed director Vera Parks is hired, actually by secret admirer Jack Harmon, the local dentist, to direct their annual Christlas 'pageant' play. It's an uphill battle against amateurism and traditionalist conservatives, but townsfolk -amog whom unsuspected talent is discovered- and Vera end up bonding, just when she gets a dream offer to direct a recluse star's come-back. Written by KGF Vissers

Hallmark channel... OK Christmas-time pagaent
7 November 2013 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

Just enough familiar faces in "Pagaent" to keep me interested. Edward Hermann is Garrett Clark (LOVED him in Overboard, with Goldie Hawn). In our film, his wife Ethel is played by Candice Azzara ( You'll know her as Rodney D's wife in "Easy Money"). Unfortunately, the comedic scenes here are pretty hokey... our star Melissa Gilbert has a spilled food scene at dinner, but the timing isn't right or something. She plays Vera, who has come from the big city to be director of a small town play. Sound familiar ? I couldn't stop thinking of Christopher Guest's "Waiting for Guffman". Vera manages to tick off most of the cast, and no-one seem s to like the changes she wants to make. This film also has similarities to "Big Eden", except in that one, the townspeople really like the outsider, big city person who returns to the small town. Of course, Vera must meet a townie, and there are ups and downs as we watch the courtship, helped along by a precocious little girl. It's OK. Things happen, decisions must be made. On the Hallmark Channel. Directed by David Cass, who directed Gilbert in two earlier films. Cass also has an interesting Bio on IMDb.
