This children’s musical is so easy to stage! Because children are able to read their lines instead of memorizing them, more time may be spent learning the songs. Just as in the popular original play, children write letters and read them aloud to Joseph, Mary, the Innkeeper, a Shepherd, an Angel and the Baby Jesus. The biblical characters reply, reading from...  read more

In that humble setting, they witness "God's love come to earth in the form of a child." Clever lyrics and bright...  read more
