A delightful Nativity play in which the major players converge on the Bethlehem stable, each carrying a flickering (LED) candle that contributes to illuminating the stable in a charming tableau.
Available separately as both a Junior and, with simplified songs and dialogue, Infant version. They are not interchangeable. This is the Junior version.
THE STORY: Eve, a novice shepherdess (or, renamed, a boy shepherd) is tasked with looking after three new born lambs on the mountainside above Bethlehem. The Angel Gabriel appears to and tells her that she must follow three lights in the valley to reach a stable, but, distracted, she has let the three lambs run away!
Gabriel helps her to find two lambs by giving her two flickering candles to attract them back, but the third, Scampi, has run off. Eve and her shepherd friends set off down the mountain, having seen the three lights moving in the valley.
Meanwhile Three Wise Men make their candle-lit way along the valley towards Bethlehem. The star they were following has disappeared - they do not know what to do.
They search for a sign to find the Lamb of God just as Scampi runs past them and dashes into a stable up ahead on the outskirts of Bethlehem. Enter the shepherds, having caught up with the Wise Men and Eve explains that she has seen an Angel but lost Scampi. The Magi reassure her that this is the sign they needed, all can be resolved quickly, and Scampi is close by.
Meanwhile in the stable, Mary and Joseph and the animals try to keep Jesus warm from the cold night air. The Three Wise Men enter, placing their candles around the stable, and provide gifts as the shepherds try to catch the errant lamb, Scampi. All ends happily when Eve, holding the recaptured lamb, offers Scampi to Jesus to keep him nice and warm, and the Three Magi recognise the true value of her gift of life to baby Jesus.
[LED candles can be bought on-line for around £10 for 6]
