About "Bethlehem's Big Night"
Most nativity plays or musicals are rather straightforward and humorless - not so with this tender and humorous full-length Christmas Nativity script. Noted humorist Martha Bolton takes the age-old Christmas story and introduces some genuine characters like the two innkeepers' wives who vie for customers with their "vacancy" and "no vacancy" signs. Music by Bill Wolaver matches Martha's lyrics to a tee. The tee can stand for "townspeople" who make up a chorus and have speaking lines. Also includes five holiday-Christmas sketches: "The Scrooge Patrol," "The Sweatshop," "Tree Top," "Shopper Stopper," and "I Did It All Myself." This 45-minute presentation makes a great choice for church services, dinner theatre, or entertainment for any kind of seasonal event. Song contents: Bethlehem's Big Night * No One Special * No One Special (reprise) * You're Welcome Here * Right Here in Bethlehem * When You Make Room for Him * Jesus, Welcome to Your World * Finale (including "O Come All Ye Faithfu
