The Best Christmas Pageant Ever at Cotuit Center for the Arts

For the Holidays, Cotuit Center for the Arts presents The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. Everyone agreed that the six Herdman kids were the worst kids in the world. They lied, they stole, they hit little kids, they talked dirty, and even the girls smoked cigars. Sunday School was a safe haven for the other children because the Herdmans never went there. But when the Herdmans show up one Sunday looking for chocolate cake, they hear about the Christmas pageant and decide they want to take part. To the dismay of everyone involved, the Herdmans land the main parts in the play. Although everyone expects a disaster, the Herdmans bring a fresh interpretation to the Christmas story, a story they had never heard before. Mark your calendars for a hilarious and heart-warming Holiday show for the whole family.The Best Christmas Pageant Ever at Cotuit Center for the Arts
