Dress Rehearsal

So this is the scene:

Two shepherds sock each other in the arm when they think the director is not looking in their direction.
Mother Mary giggles at Angel Gabriel instead of acting frightened.
Narrator #4 always loses his place in the script.
Caesar Augustus will not raise his voice, and so the decree is only heard by his bodyguard.
The innkeepers all memorized the same lines.
Joseph and Mary do not want to stand next to each other.
Two of the wise men have to go to the bathroom.
And Angel Gabriel keeps sneezing.

Yes, it is a typical Christmas Pageant Practice!

But then it is time to sing "Silent Night" and as the children gaze on the little baby Jesus, they are perfect angels!

The Rafiki Traveling Roadshow Christmas Pageant will be performing for local villages this week, with the premier performance being delivered on December 22.

It is Christmas and we are blessed among peoples. Hoping you can say the same!

Merry Christmas!
Love, Dave and Babs
