ARROGANT WORMS – CHRISTMAS

Bert Church Theatre

It began as a hobby, making fun of a big dumb world. Luckily, the world is still dumb and the Arrogant Worms (Mike McCormick, Chris Patterson and Trevor Strong) still have plenty to sing about. The shows are fast, furious and family-friendly. The wit is quick, the satire is biting and the musicianship is second to none. Their appeal has earned the Arrogant Worms fans from kids to parents to grandparents.
