A heartwarming, hilarious, holiday tale
by Barbara Robinson
Directed by Chris Martin

A young mother and her family unexpectedly take charge of their church’s annual Christmas
pageant after the usual director breaks her leg.  At the first rehearsal, the six Herdman
children, possibly the worst kids in the history of the world, entrench themselves into the
lead roles.  None of them have ever really
heard the Christmas story, but as they
uncover the true meaning of Christmas, so does everyone else, including the
audience.  Based on the popular book of the same name (over 800,000 copies
sold), this heartwarming, hilarious and satisfying holiday tale is fast becoming a

“One of the best Christmas stories ever—and certainly one of the funniest.”—The
Seattle Times

“This will make you feel good about the Christmas season….These little ruffians
will win you over.”
