A group of children from a local church have only one week to invite people from all over town to a birthday party for Jesus. Each day, they meet back at the church to share responses of the people they invited. These responses correlate to the way people in the Christmas story reacted to Christ's birth. A cast of six main characters, several church kids and ten upbeat songs come together to count down the days to party time. Dialogue and singing is crisp and easy to understand in this 40-minute musical. The town's TV station anchor gets involved, allowing the children on air to extend their invitation. He mocks the children and the activity. The final song asks the TV man and the audience, "What Will You Do with Jesus?"
