Play Synopsis: In this beloved story, a reluctant pageant director is determined to succeed with "the worst kids in the whole history of the world" - the Herdmans! Bullies, thieves, smokers and more, the Herdman siblings are bent on turning the Christmas Pageant into Revenge at Bethlehem! The entire congregation is afraid of them.
