PASTAFARIAN’S REJOICE!
THE HUNGER ARTISTS THEATRE COMPANY CLOSES ITS
10th ANNIVERSARY SEASON
WITH THE WORLD PREMIERE OF

THE FLYING SPAGHETTI MONSTER HOLIDAY PAGEANT
December 1 – 17, 2006

FULLERTON, CA – Finally, a holiday pageant for the rest of us! The Hunger Artist Theater Company celebrates the world’s newest and quite possibly best religious movement, Pastafarianism, with the world premiere of The Flying Spaghetti Monster Holiday Pageant, a hilarious, fast-paced comedy written by Jeremy Gable and directed by Katie Chidester, December 1-17, 2006.

Founded in 2005 by physics graduate Bobby Henderson to protest the decision by the Kansas State Board of Education to require the teaching of intelligent design as an alternative to biological evolution, The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster venerates a supernatural Creator that resembles spaghetti and meatballs.
In his Noodly Wisdom, the Flying Spaghetti Monster created the world out of trees, a mountain and a midget. To prove the existence of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, Henderson has graphed a correlation between the decline of pirates and the rise of global warming. Followers of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM) call themselves Pastafarians, and advocate the teaching of FSMism alongside Intelligent Design, in keeping with President George W. Bush’s belief that "… part of education is to expose people to different schools of thought.”

The Hunger Artists new comedy picks up after the Kansas State Board of Education decision to add Intelligent Design to its curriculum. School teacher Ms. Fism can't keep up with the number of religions that she has to teach. For Week 37: Flying Spaghetti Monsterism, the audience is treated to an Old School holiday pageant with pirates, strippers and a beer volcano (!) From the beginning of the world (including the aforementioned trees, mountains and a midget) to present-day (with contemporary Internet prophet Bobby Henderson), it's a celebration of free speech, religious freedom, diversity, equality, and of course, pasta.

The Flying Spaghetti Monster Holiday Pageant features an all-star cast from throughout the community including Susy Davis, Leonard Joseph Dunham, Jeremy Gable, James Grant, Scott Keister, Becky Kinder, Jessica Lynch, MaryAnne Mosher, Robert M. Tully, Amber Scott and Antonio Viramontes.

Joy Bice designs lights for The Flying Spaghetti Monster Holiday Pageant. Costumes are by Grace Lynch. Props are by Jessica Lynch. Christina Acero designs sound, and Antonio Swagler is the production’s scenic painter.

“We are so honored that Bobby Henderson has given The Hunger Artists his blessing to create and produce this first-ever Flying Spaghetti Monster Holiday Pageant,” says Associate Artistic Director Jeremy Gable, “Clearly, we all want to honor the pleas for tolerance and inclusion made by this country’s leaders. We feel that by presenting this, we are contributing, even if only in some small way, to the rich spiritual traditions of this great country.”

Performances of The Flying Spaghetti Monster Holiday Pageant will take place on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm, Sundays at 7 pm. There will be a special “$5.00 Night” performance on Thursday November 30 at 8 pm,
