PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Synopsis
This fresh and humorous retelling of the traditional Christmas story taps the various talents and interest of a wide cast of characters. The story follows those traveling to Bethlehem as well as the activities of shepherds, an innkeeper, and census official. Also included are singing sheep, bumbling guards, and Magi who crack jokes.
The run time is about 40 minutes. There is no intermission.

Roles
No roles dominate the script, but some are featured while a handful can offer just a line or two for those so interested. Primary characters are probably best suited to 4th grade students and up. Younger kids could participate in ensemble songs.

Music
The score spans a variety of traditional Broadway styles. While easily learned, the melodies are catchy, and the lyrics cleverly weave into the story. Stronger singers have opportunities for solos. Ensemble pieces are interspersed. Not every character is called on to sing.
Orchestration is of an intermediate difficulty level and includes piano and trumpet, although a clarinet could be easily substituted. A simple percussion part can be added for one tune. See below for the list of songs in the Score.

Set
The set can be modest, with two storefronts reversible to dark backgrounds, serving as the Bethlehem countryside.

Costumes
Costuming can likewise be simple, from shepherds’ robes to simple daily wear of the period. Two soldiers on patrol may have basic props, and a few characters are sheep.
