Grace Polaris Church unveils new Christmas pageant ‘Go Tell It’
Grace Polaris Church is preparing to put on it new Christmas performance ‘Go Tell It.’ In 2016, the Far North Side Church retired its popular annual ‘Living Christmas Trees’ pageant after 30 years.
Last year, Sarah Lozier’s holiday season felt a little empty without her annual participation in the Christmas pageant at Grace Polaris Church.
But, this year, she gets to be a part of the pageant with her husband, Jeremiah, and show him the joy that has filled her own holidays for more than a decade.
“We just love theater,” she said. “We were looking for some sort of way to be involved in the church … We’re really like a family during this time.”
Sarah and Jeremiah Lozier — she’s 21, he’s 22 — will appear on the Grace Polaris stage this year as Mary and Joseph in its all-new production, “Go Tell It.”
For 30 years, Grace Polaris put on a Christmas pageant called “Living Christmas Trees,” where two, tiered Christmas “trees” held choir members on scaffolding. The pageant was held for the last time in 2016, and the church took a year off before starting a new production, which will debut on Dec. 14.
