The Herdmans are the worst kids in the history of the world. They lie, steal, and smoke cigars, even the girls! They talk dirty and hit little kids on the head. So no one is prepared when this outlaw family invades church one Sunday and decides to take over the annual Christmas pageant. None of the Herdmans has ever heard the Christmas story before - it's all news to them! So they're convinced that the Wise Men should bring pizza and that the Angel of the Lord is straight out of a comic book. Everyone worries that this year's pageant will be horrible, but they are sure to make it the most unusual anyone has seen and, just possibly, the best one ever. Adapted from the beloved novel by Barbara Robinson, this play is sure to be fun for the whole family!
