In this new dramatic Christmas musical, brought to you by stellar creative team Joel Lindsey, Jeff Bumgardner, Heidi Petak, and Daniel Semsen (the same team that brought you best-selling musicals "Under a Starry Sky" and "Shepherds and Kings"), we take that keep-it-simple, tell-it-like-it-is philosophy one step further! Through the lives and stories of some wonderfully developed, true-to-life characters...along with fun,memorable, and deeply moving songs...we, too, can learn HOW TO HAVE THE BEST CHRISTMAS EVER!

Through the razzle-dazzle, hustle-bustle of everyday life (which always seems to slip into hyperdrive during the holiday season!), we can easily be distracted from the true meaning of Christmas, and lose sight of the message that Christ came to be our Savior. We forget the King Who came to us so long ago in a humble manger. After all, in the midst of the craziness that seems to overtake the world around us during the holidays, we wonder, in the words of our main character, Carol, “what a manger has to do with me today?”

Bring Christmas to life for your church and community with the presentation of HOW TO HAVE THE BEST CHRISTMAS EVER...a compelling, funny, and moving dramatic musical, sure to challenge and delight your music and drama teams while bringing the beauty of the Christmas story to the world around you.
