Synopsis of the script -
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 fighting 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 first-time director Grace to cancel the whole thing. But it's up to her 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. Silent night? Not a chance. But sometimes a little joyful noise is just right for Christmas.

This musical is based on the wonderful book by Barbara Robinson, "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" and is a holiday favorite for all generations.

If you are unable to make any of the above audition dates/times...please make an appointment at (630) 750-1010 to be seen - we'd love to include you in the cast.
