The first book in Barbara Robinson's popular Herdmans series, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, introduced us to the six "worst kids in the world." This hilarious and heartwarming comedy, adapted for the stage by Robinson herself, follows the delinquent Herdman children, who attend church for the first time because they're told there will be snacks. Over the rest of the town's objections, the ne'er-do-wells are cast in the Christmas play -- a sure-fire recipe for disaster. A celebration of the holiday season's transformative power, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is a delightful time for the whole family. Learn More

Marvelous performances -- text from a deeply sincere strain or priimitivist Christianity -- suggests that our contemporary world is every bit as depraved as the historical context of the incarnation -- strong medicine for christians, but even powerful enough to affect liberal humanists such as myself...
by Harry Chapin and Tom Key
The revamped version of this entertaining musical features the reverential retelling of the Gospels of Matthew and John in a contemporary southern setting, set to bluegrass music. The award winning musical is based on the book The Cotton Patch Gospel of Matthew and John by Clarence Jordan, a Bible scholar and Civil Rights activist. Tom Key and Russell Treyz adapted Jordan's writtings and worked with the late Harry Chapin to create this musical stage version.
