So signup early to reserve your ticket.
The Herdmans are the worst kids in the history of the world–so when they crash Sunday school and demand parts in the Christmas pageant, the whole town panics. There’s not supposed to be biting or cigar-smoking in Bethlehem, and while these kids have never even heard the Christmas story, they definitely have rewrites! Soon everyone from the terrified pint-sized shepherds to the furious church ladies are calling for reluctant director Grace Bradley to cancel the whole thing. It’s up to Bradley and the Reverend to help their community see the Christmas story and the Herdman kids through new eyes in this buoyant musical adaptation of the funny and touching holiday classic. Cost of the tickets are $28 adult under 60 years of age and $22 Student through College/Senior Citizen 60+ years of age. Additional cost of $5 for roundtrip transportation if you do not drive. Lunch on your own at The Barn Restaurant. Silent night? Not a chance. But sometimes a little joyful noise is just right for Christmas. Signup and pay for your ticket no later than October 30th.
