The youth cast rehearses for the "Best Christmas Pageant Ever," at the Community Center at Light and Life Christian Fellowship's after-school theater program in North Long Beach. The theater's goal is to offer less fortunate middle school aged children in the heavily gang-influenced communities of North Long Beach a glimpse into the world of secular theater and provide them an opportunity to discover their creative potential.
