The Best Christmas Pageant Ever  
A.D. Players Theater The Best Christmas Pageant Ever
Christmas is a time to be good and spread holiday cheer -- unless you're a part of the Herdman clan, in which case your goal is to partake in enough delinquent behavior to end up on a permanent naughty list. When the rowdy and rambunctious Herdman children show up at a local Sunday school in search of free snacks, they wind up getting cast in the annual snooze-fest of a Christmas pageant. The kids wreak havoc on the show, scaring off other cast members, offending the congregants and even setting fire to the church. But one way or another, the Herdman herd is determined to put on The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. Don't miss this hilarious holiday classic -- based on the beloved children's book -- when it decks the halls at A.D. Players Theater in Houston.
