The Best Christmas Pageant Ever
by Barbara Robinson
Directed by Kerry Lockwood Owen
November 2005
In this hilarious Christmas tale, 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!

"An American classic."
      -- McCall's Magazine.

"One of the best Christmas stories ever-- and certainly one of the funniest."
      -- Seattle Times.

This delightful comedy is adapted from the best selling book and the only story ever to run twice in McCall's Magazine.
