  • December 03, 2009 The Most Offensive Childrens Play Ever Viewed

    This play is disrespectful in nature and pointless at best. It gives no credit to the Savior of this world to the point that He was being crucified again. I do not have the script in front of me, but the Angel Gabriel was misrepresented in an unholy way. I...

    certainly left the play saddened by the fact that my innocent Granddaughter was part the this nonsense.It is one thing to produce a play about different customs, it is another to reduce the significance of the Lord of us all to being just a "baby in a manger ". I was sickened by this play. Even without the proper praise to God, it was boring and unimaginative.

  • August 23, 2009 Brings back memories

    I stumbled upon this and it happens to be the musical my school performed when I was in 4th grade, in Tiskilwa, IL. I was one of the chimney sweeps and it was so much fun to put together and perform. It is actually a pretty good show, the songs...

    are catchy and capture the holiday spirit in all of its forms. My parents and grandparents thought it was much more entertaining than a typical Christmas concert. I might be a bit biased because seeing the description and song names makes me feel nostalgic, but it is a really nice musical for elementary school students to perform during the holiday season.
