The Best Christmas Pageant Ever
The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

First Congegrational Church | Grand Marais MN


In this hilarious Christmas classic by Barbara Robinson, 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 from the best-selling Young Adult book, and has become a holiday staple for groups across the United States! Features plenty of great roles for children and adults, a few favorite Christmas Carols, and a lot of laughs!

Performances will be Sunday, Dec. 10 at 12:30 PM and Sunday, Dec. 17 at 2 PM.
