Preparing to have the “Best Christmas Ever” are parents Brian (Joshua Bain) and Carol (Meghan Armitage) along with their young children Ben (Joey Draper) and Ava (Josie Tischer) as part of the annual Community Christmas Choir, which opens Friday evening at the Russellville Community Center. In addition to the choir’s annual performance, this year’s show features the musical “How to Have the Best Christmas Ever.” Free and open to the public, the event will have three performances: Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m.and Sunday at 1:30 p.m. The 44-member choir, 35-member children’s choir and play cast of 11 have been practicing since late September and put the finishing touches on their performance with their Thursday rehearsal. The three-day event also features meals before each performance, available for a free-will donation, and a bake sale.
