NOTE: This is in downloadable PDF format, not a printed book
Nate (aka Nathaniel), a shepherd who has been to see Jesus in the manger, has questions. He knows that this baby is supposed to do great things, but he's not sure what those things are. A peppy angel named Felicity appears to help him understand that the baby is the long-awaited Messiah. Mr. Jefferson has heard the story of Jesus's birth, death, and resurrection a million times, and it bores him. His children are inclined to agree. This play brings the shepherd and the jaded family together to compare notes. As a result, the Jeffersons see Christmas with fresh eyes, and perhaps your audience will as well. The play can be performed by a mixture of children and adults or just children. The dialogue is snappy, funny, and non-preachy. Nine (9) actors/actresses and a chorus are required. Performance time about 15 minutes.
