When the Herdman children - "the worst kids in the history of the world" - are all cast in the annual Christmas pageant, Mrs. Bradley has her hands full. Stolen communion wine (well, really grape juice), wise men with machine guns and a fire in the middle of the final rehearsal leave everyone anticipating the worst Christmas Pageant Ever. But this warm and funny show will leave audiences with the true spirit of the season.
The Best Christmas Pageant Ever will open Friday, December 3 and run two consecutive weekends through Sunday, December 12, with a possible extension through December 19.
