Dec. 8-11
Fellowship Baptist Church [Maineville]

Official cast lists (scroll down)

The six Herdman children truly are the worst kids in the history of the entire world. They lie and they cheat, they steal lunches, bully other kids, and even smoke big smelly cigars. The only Herdman-free spot in town is church… until Charli Bradley gets pushed too far and exaggerates the glories of Sunday School. The Herdmans show up at church the next Sunday in search of free snacks and walk right into casting for the annual Christmas pageant. They take all the lead roles, and Charli’s mom, Grace, has to find a way to get the out-of-control pageant on stage. With an angel of the Lord more action hero than holy messenger, wise men choosing practical gifts over their Biblical counterparts, and a baby Jesus with gas, this year’s pageant is shaping up to be anything but traditional. But just maybe, a reimagined pageant will help the town see the Christmas story with new eyes.
