THE CHRISTMAS VISIT
6 W or M
One set – interior of a shop
The shoemaker learns
that Jesus is going to visit the shop, but the distractions of interruptions by some children, a derelict, and an old person,
leave no time for preparation. Perhaps He didn’t come at all? Then He reveals that He is present in every person in need.
One of our best. Can be performed by, and for, young or old.
CONSTANCE THE SHOEMAKER
A Christmas pageant
introduced by Constance, who tells the story from the point of view of the footwear of the participants! A unique way to look

PAGEANT OF ANGELS

SETTING OF CAROLS
A very simple Mummer’s Play – an informal Medieval assemblage of dialogue, dancing, juggling… whatever
might be presented in celebration of Christmas, as a group of singers gathers and intersperses various acts between songs.
Two speakers of dialogue, plus shepherds, wise men, animals, and angels.
