The "You'll Never Work in Theater Again" players, a new local com- munity theater troupe, are back this year by popular demand performing The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, based on the award winning book by Barbara Robinson. Performances will be held at the Gilliam Center for the Arts on the campus of UVa-Wise, Fr'lday thru Sunday, Dec. 5, 6,7. Just in time for the holi- days comes a wonderful story about the beauty of the season and the true meaning of Christmas. ..Wrong ! When Grace and Bob Bradley, two well-intentioned par- ents f'md themselves hav- ing to direct the church play at the last minute, they make the terrible mistake of casting the Herdmans; probably the most inven- tively awful family in his- tory! Chaos and hilarity results as the cast and crew collide with the Christmas story head on! All performances are at 7 p.m. each night with a special matinee perform- ance on Sunday, Dec. 7 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $10 gen- eral admission and may be purchased at the door, or reserved by calling the spe- cial Christmas Pageant Reservations Hotline at 276-328-2370. Unlike typical produc- tions of The Best Christmas Pageant Ever which feature a cast of children, this production features mostly adults, adding to the hilarity of this family focused heart- warming story. The production is directed by Kim Maya, whose professional acting and directing credits include working with such renowned organizations as the Barter Theater of Abingdon, Kentucky Center for the Arts' Stage One professional theater for young audiences of Louisville, Ky., The Blowing Rock Stage Company in Blowing Rock, N.C, and the highly acclaimed . Roadside Theater of Whitesburg, Ky. For more information on this production, please call the reservations hotline at 276-328-2370. Vehicle-deer collisions can impact your auto insurance November is the peak month for collisions between vehicles and deer. With this in mind, the State Corporation Commission's (SCC) Bureau of Insurance reminds Virginia motorists to be careful, especially when driving at dawn or dusk and in areas where deer are prevalent. "Deer are generally more active in November as a result of the mating season and other factors, and collisions are more likely," said Virginia Insurance Commissioner Jacqueline K. Cunningham. "I urge all Virginia drivers to watch out for wildlife on the highways and to contact your insurance agent or company to determine if your policy provides cov- erage for this type of loss." Damages caused to your vehicle as a result of a col- lision with a deer or other animal typically are cov- ered under the "other-than- collision" (also known as comprehensive) portion of your automobile policy. This covers such things as wind, hail and flood, as well as fire, vandalism, and theft. Keep in mind that if you have a liability-only policy, your policy does not cover your vehicle for any damages it receives in an accident with a deer or other object. One-half or more of all vehicle-deer collisions occur during the months of October, November, and December, according to the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. Increased development of traditionally rural and wooded areas, the transi- tion from daylight saving time to standard time and reduced daylight hours, and increased deer activity during their October through December breed- ing season are among the factors that contribute to the increase in vehicle-deer collisions during the fall. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there are more than one million car accidents with deer each year that kill as many as 200 Americans, cause more than 10,000 personal injuries, and result in more than $1 bil- lion in vehicle damage. To reduce your chances of hitting a deer, slow down and use caution when you see one. If it is too late to avoid a collision with a deer, stay in your lane and slow down as much as possible to mini- mize damage. Should you collide with a deer, notify law enforcement and your insurance company as soon as possible. Once it is safe to do so, take pictures of the accident scene and vehicle damage in the event you file an insurance claim. The Bureau of Insurance stands ready to assist Virginians with their questions regarding auto and many other types of insurance.
