November 29 - December 29

at the Todd Wehr Theater Directions

They’re baaack!  And so is the totally “rad” nostalgia of the 80s when the rowdy Herdman kids are chosen to star in the annual Christmas pageant.  The whole town is horrified!  But despite the interruptions in church, the fights – and even a small fire! – the spirit of the season comes alive in the Herdmans, making this the best Christmas pageant ever.

Ages 4+
