In the hilarious Christmas classic, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, 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!

This delightful comedy is adapted by Barbara Robinson from her own best-selling Young Adult book. It has since become a holiday staple all across the United States and Canada.

Barbara Robinson wrote several popular books for children, including My Brother Louis Measures Worms, The Best School Year Ever, The Best Halloween Ever, and the enormously popular bestselling novel The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, first published in 1972, which was made into a classic TV movie and on which this play was based. The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is produced annually in theaters, schools, and churches all over the world.
