In The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, the Herdman kids—a bunch of foul-mouthed smokers, thieves, and drinkers—are uncontestedly the worst choices to cast in their church’s annual Christmas play. Other children are shocked at the news of their involvement: There’s no way these six unruly delinquents can lead the production to success, short of a miracle. Released in 1971 as a novel by Barbara Robinson, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is hailed as a holiday classic.

Through 12/16. $10-18, times vary. Four County Players, 5256 Governor Barbour St., Barboursville. (540) 832-5355.
