Ordinary people pull us into their lives as they endure the hectic days before Christmas. A mother is expecting, but the baby's father has left her. Little Jacob is being bullied, while Sara is trying to get through her teen years. Sara's parents are stressed over her attitudes and the holidays. Kathy thinks Christmas is about the gifts, while a homeless man has lost everything. These characters may have closed minds and hearts, but finally, and reassuringly, all find Christmas joy. While keeping Baby Jesus as the true reason for the season, we see that figuratively we ourselves are babies in having to rediscover His message, to be reminded of it firsthand in our own unique ways. A nativity scene and numerous musical suggestions add beauty to the show. Performance time: About 40 minutes without music.
