In this hilarious Christmas classic, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with
casting the Herdman kids--probably the most inventively awful kids in history. You won't believe the mayhem -
and the fun - when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head on!
Adapted from the best-selling Young Adult book, "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" has become a holiday staple for groups across the United States! Features plenty of great roles for children and adults, a few favorite Christmas Carols, and a lot of laughs!
Funded in part by a grant from the Southbridge Cultural Council, a local agency, supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
Gateway to the Future Fund
This fund has been established to cover all
costs associated with finding a new performance space in Southbridge. We are currently exploring a few different
options, and we are anticipating this could take at least two years to find and renovate a new permanent home.
We expect the cost to do this could be upwards of $500,000. In the next year we will be holding several
fundraisers, reaching out to local businesses in the area, and applying for grants. You can also donate directly on our Facebook Page.
Login to your FB account, go to to FB/GatewayPlayers and The "Donate" button is located on the right, below the cover photo.
All donations are tax deductible. We thank you very much for your continued support of Gateway Players Theatre.
