Now brought completely up to date with catchy tunes and a beguiling stortline. Ideal for Christmas
A faithful reworking of the Nativity story, featuring a mix of new songs and popular traditional carols [see Song Excerpts].
Available separately as both a Junior and, with simplified songs and dialogue, Infant version. They are not interchangeable. This is the Infant version.
THE STORY: As the opening carol is sung, Mary and Joseph arrive, tired and hungry, in Bethlehem, to find that the coming Census means there is no room in the inn , and the only place to sleep is a stable. They reluctantly make themselves at home.
Meanwhile, the Three Wise Men have arrived at Herod’s grand palace in Jerusalem, convinced that the new king must be born there. Herod, wishing to know more, asks his soothsayers if the new king rumour is true, and where He will be born. They know it will be in Bethlehem, but not where, so Herod asks the Magi to call back to tell him - but they are not fooled.
Up on the hills around Bethlehem, the shepherds are tending their flocks when the Angel Gabriel appears, urging them to head for Bethlehem in fulfilment of the prophesies.
The Magi and shepherds converge on the stable where the Three Kings give their traditional presents to the lowly carpenter, his wife, and the new born king, to much celebration.
