In this delightful holiday comedy based on the best-selling young-adult book 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!
THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER is directed by Cyndi Hineline, Fremont. Nancy Hardy, Fremont, serves as Stage Manager. It is sponsored by Janet Scagnetti and presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.
Performances will be held in the Hirt Theater at Bellevue Society for the Arts, 205 Maple St., Bellevue, OH 44811. After the quick, one-hour show, enjoy some holiday treats in the lobby with a certain special guest!
