ABOUT THE SHOW

“If You Think Being a Parent is Difficult - Try Directing the Annual Christmas Pageant”

This delightful comedy is adapted from the best-selling Young Adult book and is suitable for the entire family!

In this hilarious Christmas classic, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids--probably the most inventively awful kids in history. You won't believe the mayhem - and the fun - when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head on!

Last Presented in 2014
