MORE ABOUT THE SHOW…
The publisher (Samuel French Publishing) says: “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! This delightful comedy is adapted from the best-selling Young Adult book, and has become a holiday staple for theatre across the United States! Features plenty of great roles for children and adults, a few favorite Christmas Carols, and a lot of laughs!”
“The show follows six throw-away kids that no one likes, coming to the realization of what Christmas is truly about,” says Director and PCT Board Member Linda Hunt. “They teach the ‘church people’ a new lesson about giving and understanding. The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is a funny, yet heart-warming show. What a way to start your Christmas season!”
