WE LOVE CHRISTMAS
This year we are celebrating our 31st Year
For over 30 years, Westside Church has been celebrating Christmas in a big way. Each year, we celebrate with a Christmas Pageant, a Broadway-style musical presentation of the Christmas story. This effort involves approximately 500+ volunteers of all ages and skills from Westside Church. In 2017, nearly 15,000 people from Nebraska and around the country attended a presentation.
2018 Christmas Pageant
Fruitcake in the Old Folk’s Home with an ill-tempered father-in-law. Stale coffee in the hospital with an estranged, problem sister and her nosey hospital roommate. The options are not great for the Greene family as they clumsily try to patch up their broken family.
Despite all their efforts, this very well may be the worst Christmas ever. Or, is it?

Is there parking for tour buses?
Please email email@example.com to let us know you have a large group coming and need accommodations for tour buses. We will be able to send you instructions and alert our parking team of your arrival.
Do children or infants need a ticket?
If a child is under two years of age, and will sit on the lap of an adult for the entire presentation, they do NOT need a ticket. Please note that children will not be allowed to sit on the floor in any part of the auditorium, or in an aisle, at any time. There are way too many animals, dancers, actors, etc. in the aisles during our presentations. We love your children too and want them to be safe!
Is there nursery or childcare available during any of the presentations?
We do not offer nursery or childcare for any of the presentations. Our pageants are child friendly. However if your child/children need a break, you can continue to view the presentation on one of the monitors located in the hallway or in the designated CRY ROOM.
What time should I arrive for the presentation?
Please be in your seat, ready for the presentation to begin, a few minutes before 3:00 pm or 7:00 pm. We attempt to begin the show ON TIME, and need everyone seated for the opener! If you arrive later, you may not be seated until a ‘break’ in the action.
Whom should I contact if there is a problem ordering tickets online?
If you are having trouble placing an order online, please contact Brushfire Customer Service, 866-437-5266.
Is there an alternative way to order tickets?
In addition to ordering through this website, you may call Brushfire Customer Service at 866-437-5266 to place an order by telephone.
Are the seats assigned?
YES! You will receive a reserved seat in the Worship Center for every ticket ordered!
When do the doors open for seating?
The doors to the church building and Worship Center open one hour prior to each presentation, 2:00 pm or 6:00 pm.
How long does the presentation last? Is there an Intermission?
Please allow 1 ½ - 2 hours for the presentation. To maintain the flow of the pageant we do not have an Intermission.
Is the church accessible to wheelchairs?
Yes, the church building and entrances on the east and west sides are accessible to wheelchairs. Handicap parking is available in both the east and the west lots. Wheelchair seating is available on the main floor for all presentations in Section E, Row M. Once entering the doors our greeters and ushers can help accommodate your needs. Please note wheelchairs may not be positioned in the aisles or any other sections of the auditorium.
IS THERE AN ELEVATOR TO THE BALCONY?
We highly recommend seating on the floor for those who are not able to climb stairs. There is an elevator on the west side of the building that can be accessed with the help of Security. The elevator goes to the second floor, but there are still steps to climb to get to most balcony seats.
Is there a presentation for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing?
Saturday, December 8, 3:00 pm, will be interpreted and has been designated as the presentation for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.
Where is Westside Church located?
Westside Church is located at 15050 West Dodge Road, Omaha, NE, 68154. Westside is on the northwest corner of 150th & Dodge.
Where should I park?
Once you arrive at Westside Church, please follow our parking lot attendants. They will assist you in finding a parking space.
What if I purchased tickets and now can’t use them?
Ticket orders are non-refundable and non-exchangeable. If you order tickets and cannot use them, sell or give them to a friend! Westside Church is not able to refund or exchange tickets.
What rows do the camels come down?
The camels enter/exit the auditorium between Sections B & C and Sections D & E on the main floor.
Are there animals in the balcony?
We make every attempt to bring smaller animals to the balcony area. The camels and other animals enter the auditorium at the beginning of ACT 2. The camels enter again towards the end of ACT 2.
The Christmas Pageant is a ministry of Westside Church. Our mission is to use creative arts to share the Gospel with as many people as we can. In 2016 alone about 15,000 people were able to see and experience the love of Jesus at a Christmas Pageant.
