This musical takes place at the final dress rehearsal for the Christmas pageant. The costumes finally arrive and when they are pulled "out of the box," they are all wrong. Working together, the children come up with some unique, comical and heartfelt ways to share the Christmas message with their friends and family. After all, if God can use a donkey to speak to Balaam and a burning bush to speak to Moses... he can surely use cowboys, pirates, and cheerleaders to tell his love story.
This 35-minute musical has 12 speaking parts: an adult female director, an older boy in charge of props, a young girl in charge of costumes, three wise men dressed as cowboys, a sweet little girl, two angels dressed as cheerleaders, two shepherds dressed as pirates, and an adult male who owns the costume shop. There are other opportunities for small solos and readings from Luke 2.
Created by Celeste Clydesdale, arranged by David T. Clydesdale.
