Santa's Naughty List? Puh-lease. The Herdman kids are so bad, they're more likely to wind up on the FBI's Most Wanted List, spots No. 1-6. But bad as they are, they're great fun to watch in The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. Based on Barbara Robinson's beloved book -- Publisher's Weekly straight-up called it "one of the best Christmas books ever" -- this stage production perfectly captures the merry mayhem that results when the Herdmans, the town's foul-mouthed, sticky-fingered, pyromaniacal bullies, decide to audition for the annual holiday pageant and re-tell the nativity story their way. Now Provision Theater for Young Audiences performs this contemporary Christmas classic sure to delight those of all ages.
Running time is approximately 60 with no intermission.
