Since I'm cutting back on blogging just a bit in November due to our Christmas play, WTB, I've had a few people ask me about the play. If you're interested, here you go...
|The angel scene has really grown over the years. It's beautiful to behold.|
Walk Through Bethlehem (click here for webpage)
Join Thomas, a shepherd tour guide, as he searches for the newborn messiah. You'll meet angels, Roman Soldiers, beggars, merchants, gossipy women, a grouchy innkeeper, and more! By the end of the tour, you'll find the true meaning of Christmas...God's greatest gift to us, Jesus.
|Merchant Scene - This photo is from a rehearsal. When the scene is fully decorated, it has tents, authentic foods, fabrics, and every kind of bazaar item! Our set designer, Anne Hill, is AMAZING!|
About 6 years ago I found a website to a mid-western church that put on a Christmas play that took audiences to several stations around their church. They posted the script on-line and it was free to use. Once our building project was complete (4 years ago), it was time to try WTB at our church. I chose locations on the 1st floor of our church:
|Roman Soldier Census Scene|
Audience Waiting Area (1/2 Family Life Center)
Angel scene (1/2 Family Life Center)
Roman Soldier Census scene (choir room)
Beggar scene (hallway)
Merchant scene (sanctuary annex)
Women at the Well scene (sanctuary)
Innkeeper scene (hallway/door)
Bread-making home scene (preschool room)
Stable scene (chapel)
Salvation Story (library)
I've modified the script slightly over the years to add characters.
We have 700-1000 people attend in the 6 hours we perform!
Do you have any questions about WTB? If so, ask in the comments and I'll add and update in the post!
