In The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, the Herdmans are the worst kids in the history of the world. They lie, steal, smoke cigars, and swear. So no one is prepared when this outlaw family invades church one Sunday and decides to take over the annual Christmas pageant. This comedy is adapted from the best-selling book by Barbara Robinson, and has become a holiday staple for Third Avenue Playhouse, StageKids, and groups across the United States. The play features plenty of great roles for children and adults, a few favorite Christmas Carols, and a lot of laughs.
