Christmas show

I say this about almost all of our shows, but this one really is my favorite and, I hope, a favorite of a lot of our audiences.
We will perform "It Came to Pass," (the story of Jesus' birth), six times this season:

11 a.m. & 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 6
(No performance on Sunday, Dec. 7, during Hazel Green's Christmas Walk)
11 a.m. & 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 13
2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 14
2 p.m. Monday, Dec. 29 

This show has shimmering angels and wisemen clothed in glittering capes, a flute-playing shepherd and a shepherd boy shouldering a lamb. 
A wolf chases the sheep. A very pregnant Mary walks through the streets of Bethlehem with Joseph and a donkey, "all shaggy and brown," before arriving at the stable. The wisemen, accompanied by a long-suffering camel, lay their gifts at Mary's feet, and foil King Herod's attempt to find the Christchild.
We've filled the show with favorite Christmas carols and new music. It's a show we've done many times over the years. We try to make it a little different each time, while making it one of our traditions. We hope it becomes one of yours, too.

Admission is still only $4 for adults and $3 for children. Church and religious ed groups are especially welcome. For other information, call 608-759-4425.
