A Musical for Young Voices

What a delightful children's musical for the Christmas season! O Little Christmas Town centers on God's ultimate plan for the town of Bethlehem. Dialogue is at times lighthearted, and at others, incredibly profound as the citizens of Bethlehem share the news of the Messiah's birth. The work is about 20 minutes in length, with an overture and five choral pieces that contain new melodies as well as familiar carols. It may be accompanied by piano, or by using the available orchestral CD. Production of this musical is extremely accessible with simple, yet effective suggestions for sets, props, and parts that may be performed by girls or boys.
