Item Number: LO.CGC51
This delightful Christmas musical retells the nativity story through songs and stories of those who shared in the glorious event of Christ's birth. Radio studio "J-O-Y" sets the stage where a local children's choir and their pastor present the Christmas story while being interviewed by disc jockey celebrity, "Dee Jay." Throughout the on-air show, characters from the Christmas story share how their lives were touched by the Savior's birth while entertaining radio reporters intersperse breaking news stories that coincidentally mirror the events of the very first Christmas! Voiced primarily for unison singing, the well-crafted vocal parts and engaging, creative accompaniments make the musical a joy to teach and to learn. Both humorous and poignant, the dramatic narrative employs numerous roles for girls and boys, including several non-speaking roles.
