When the Herdmans, the worst kids in town, somehow wrangle the leading roles in the local Christmas Pageant it seems everything that is sacred will be lost. Yet, through this motley crew of rough and tumble kids, the true meaning of Christmas is movingly rediscovered. Adapted from Barbara Robinson’s widely acclaimed contemporary Christmas classic, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever continues to delight kids and their families year after year.

This annual celebration at the Charleston Music Hall brings folks who love music together around one important mission: helping to end pediatric cancer by raising funds for cutting-edge research.

The Blue Dogs and their famous musical friends perform an unforgettable show filled with surprises to benefit the Medical University of South Carolina Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital. Specifically, funds raised each year support Dr. Jacqueline M. Kraveka, who runs the only pediatric oncology research lab in our state. With the help of special guests like Darius Rucker, Hootie and the Blowfish, Edwin McCain, Radney Foster, Drivin n Cryin, Peter Holsapple and many more local and regional musicians, as well as a generous partnership with The Press On Fund who shares this event’s mission, almost half a million dollars have been raised since 2013 to support pediatric cancer research.
