In this hilarious classic, a couple struggling to mount the annual church pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids-and nothing says Christmas like a family of raucous, misbehaving bullies. You won’t believe the mayhem – and the fun – when the Herdmans collide head on with the Christmas story! This delightful and poignant comedy, adapted from the best-selling book, has become a holiday staple for groups across the country. Our production will feature many of your favorite Christmas carols and a whole lot of laughs!
