Strong characterizations, sight gags and snarky humor shape this depiction of the three Magi. While the setting is back then, the vernacular and style are very right now. Arrogant Melchior proclaims he’s the first to interpret the prophecy about the Christ child. He sets out to find the new King with young but wise Balthazar and book-smart-but-not-street-smart Gaspar. At the palace, Herod is so power-hungry and horrible, it’s comical—and his advisor Gamaliel is a spineless wimp from the get-go. Herod insists the trio stop on their return trip and spill the details on the new King. The star shines a spotlight on Mary and Joseph’s humble home, where the couple banters over who should change Jesus’ swaddling clothes. The three present their gifts to the baby King—then throw Herod off their trail with an alternate route home. Filled with outsized personalities and plot twists. Originally performed as a children's Epiphany pageant.
