Everyone is horrified when the Herdmans show up with their children at the church Christmas Pageant try-outs


Because their children are horrible - they steal, they burn down buildings, and they generally terrorize the neighborhood

In fact, their classmates only feel safe from them at church

That is, until an innocent comment brings the Herdmans into the church where they find themselves starring in the annual Christmas pageant

Soon even the congregation is running for cover!

But who would have guessed that the parents, teachers, children, and especially the Herdmans could end up discovering the true meaning of the season?

Find out why everyone is in such an uproar over the Herdmans, and how a series of disasters turns into what everyone comes to agree is The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

This delightful comedy has become a festive favorite and offers plenty of great roles for children and adults

And a lot of laughs!

Runs about 60 minutes


"An American classic" ~ McCall's Magazine

"One of the best Christmas stories ever - and certainly one of the funniest" ~ The Seattle Times
