Recommended for grades K-6, The Unfriendly Beasts is a charming, humorous story of the manger animals who must share their crowded stable with Mary, Joseph and the infant Jesus. The animals protest, and Mayor Mouse leads them in preparing a "NO VACANCY" sign. But, as the Light of Salvation gradually illumines the stable darkness, their hearts are turned from coldness to compassion. Soon, the Unfriendly Beasts become the Friendly Beasts, and the entire stable joins in welcoming the holy family. Will you join them? Will you open your heart to Jesus? Approximately 20 minutes long, this musical is flexibly designed for children's choirs, Sunday schools or Christian schools and features 6 easy unison songs, some featuring optional 2nd parts, simple dialog and staging suggestions. Alan Billingsley's fully-orchestrated accompaniment/performance CD recording is available separately.
