In this hilarious 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! If you are looking for a chance to spend an hour of quality time with your family, take them to see The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.

WHO WILL LOVE IT? Everyone! Don’t miss this play for your annual dose of holiday magic with touches of comedy, friends, and family. Rated G.

Ticket Prices: Adults $16 | Children (Under 18) $11
