Nestled in the Stable

Book By: David Moberg
Play #: 1481
Pages: 23 pgs
Cast: 2 storytellers, any number of children as animals and townspeople

Various animals in the stable aren't happy when two strangers intrude upon their quiet night. The sparrows, cows, and sheep, along with mice and doves are upset and wish the humans would find another place to stay. They don't want to share their grain or warm hay. And after walking for miles, even the poor donkey is too tired to help Joseph and Mary. But then God fulfills his most glorious promise: Baby Jesus is born. Everything changes as each group of animals gives a special gift to comfort the Baby and his parents. At last, as all finally sleep, the tired donkey stays watchful over the beautiful stable. This play requires minimal costumes and scenery, adjusts to any performance space, and can be rehearsed in small units. With simple lines for easy memorization, it is sure to be a success. About 30 minutes.
