Cast: Large, flexible cast.

From the original story by Leo Tolstoy. Christmas Eve has come, but the old Russian shoemaker, Papa Panovich, is sad and alone. When he begins to read the story of the very first Christmas, the treasured words take on new life as he imagines and interacts with the words of Scripture. Then Papa Panovich believes he hears Jesus speaking to him, telling him that He will visit him tomorrow. All the next day while looking longingly for Jesus, Papa Panovich stops to help so many - providing a warm drink for Ivan, the old street sweeper; encouraging a struggling widow; keeping a gang of young pickpockets out of trouble; and finally giving a precious pair of shoes to a young mother's child. In the end Papa learns a timeless lesson. In this beautiful version designed to include children, care was taken to weave the Scriptural account of Christmas into the original story. About 45 minutes.
