It's dress rehearsal time for this year's Christmas pageant, and the Stage Manager is whipping the troops into shape for the performance. They're all here-angels, shepherds, and stars-but the one thing missing is the true meaning of Christmas. Enter Mary, Joseph, and the Child in the manger for a warm reminder of that first Christmas night! Easily prepared and presented, this short musical is perfect for younger and/or smaller children's choirs, and it can be performed with as few as seven children. Songs include: Beneath a Shining Star; I'm Booked Up; God Will See Us Through; Let's All Go to Bethlehem; What Is This New Star?; Sing to the Newborn King. 16 minutes.
