About the show:
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! This delightful comedy 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!

*Rated G - Approved for all audiences.

About the show:
Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of the year, but by the morning it is one passenger fewer. An American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. Isolated and with a killer in their midst, detective Hercule Poirot must identify the murderer – in case he or she decides to strike again.

About the show:In a modern musical retelling of the Gospel of Matthew, a group of ordinary people are called by John the Baptist to give up their normal lives to follow Jesus Christ. Through parables, songs, and dance, the group spreads Christ’s message of kindness, tolerance, and love, even as the story moves inevitably forward to The Last Supper and Crucifixion.

About the show:

Arrogant, self-centered, and sharp tongued Jason Carmichael, successful co-author of Broadway romantic comedies, is facing two momentous events: he is about to marry a society belle and his collaborator is retiring. Enter Phoebe Craddock, Vermont schoolteacher and budding playwright. Quicker than a flash, Jason acquires a talented and adoring collaborator in the mousy Phoebe. Fame and success follow, even as their unrequited interest in each other builds in intensity during the years that follow.
