THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER
By Barbara Robinson
ABOUT THE SHOW
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!
