Rich's wife, Joyce Swingle, can supplement the play with her two short Christmas pieces, "The Shepherd's Daughter" and "The Consecrated Prophetess".
The best preparatory celebration I've ever had for Advent. You exegeted the scriptures very well.

Your performance was a gift.
--Emmanuel Lobato, Yonkers, NY
This was performed on the other side of the wall from what is believed to be the actual manger in which Jesus was born. Our guide to the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem said it's over 9 out of 10 probability that it's the actual manger because a Byzantine church is built over a little chapel enclosing a stone manger. That chapel is the oldest church on earth that is still being used. It was built within 100 years of Jesus' death, so it was the grandkids of those who were there that identified it as The Spot. This was a part of CITA to the Nations, a trip to Jordan and Israel to teach theatre arts to students in Amman, Jordan, and to perform pieces where they took place in both countries.
