“The Best Christmas Pageant Ever”

DEC 10th | Times Vary- | Alabama Shakespeare Festival

Dec. 10-29. What happens when the rowdiest kids in town find out there are free snacks at Sunday school? They decide to audition for the annual Christmas pageant! The Herdman kids take over the church’s holiday production and insist on playing all the good parts. They’ve never heard the nativity story and have no idea who Mary, Joseph, or the wise men are. It’s disgraceful! Silent night? Not a chance, but sometimes a little joyful noise is just what Christmastime needs. Visit www.asf.net.
