The Best Christmas Pageant Ever: The Musical
Dec 1st & 2nd at 7pm
Dec. 3rd at 2pm

Best Christmas PagaentThe Herdmans are the worst kids in the history of the world–so when they crash Sunday school and demand parts in the Christmas pageant, the whole town panics. There’s not supposed to be fighting or cigar-smoking in Bethlehem, and while these kids have never even heard the Christmas story, they definitely have rewrites!

Soon everyone from the terrified pint-sized shepherds to the furious church ladies are calling for first-time director Grace to cancel the whole thing. But it’s up to her and the Reverend to help their community see the Christmas story and the Herdman kids through new eyes in this buoyant musical adaptation of the funny and touching holiday classic.

Silent night? Not a chance. But sometimes a little joyful noise is just right for Christmas.
