The mystifying events that occur before the birth of Jesus provide the context for this unique Christmas pageant. The shepherds awakened on the hillside outside Bethlehem by angels and were filled with awe. But some 21st-century kids dressed as shepherds will probably make the audience chuckle, so this pageant is designed to allow the audience to laugh. The Suprising Christmas Pageant is a comedy through which the gifts of humor and children tell the story of Christ's birth, reminding us that God's grace and love appear new to us every day. The production can be staged with as little or as many sets, costumes, and props as desired, and it can be produced with only two 2-hour rehearsals. Children's parts are reproducible. An accompaniment CD is included. Ages Kindergarten through eighth grade.

This was a fantastic musical. Our kids loved it, and were begging to do it again before they even took off their costumes at the end of the night. Funny and quirky, but touching and with a sense of awe. I highly recommend it!

I read this and laughed my head off. It is really cute! The kids love it and want to do it. Angels with cell phones and the shepherds acting like cowboys is funny! It does get the message across and in a funny and unusual way. I am not sure about the two - two-hour practices.....unless you have very well behaved kids that listen to exactly what you want done and do it right the first time! But we have been working on it for 45 minutes for the last 4 weeks and kids are doing ok.....songs are a little bit harder. Wish they were lower voices, but they are ok. As for props, it is fantastic! Hardly any needed! All sound effects are right on the CD! It is great! Two thumbs up, and more if I have them!
