Christmas Play - The Travellers' Delight

Here's a chance for your church or school: How about presenting 

the Song Project's Christmas Play The Travellers' Delight in the weeks before Christmas?

 

It tells the traditional story but in an off-beat way. For example, the shepherds have water pistols to repel the wolves and there’s a ram with over-eager horns.


Amid the fun, the viewpoint is Christian. For example, the angel says to the shepherds

 

Think of it - God being born as we speak,

God on the filthy earth, small and weak.

 

The play has a run-time of half an hour and parts for ten or a dozen performers (age unimportant, sense of fun vital!). The simple verse

makes learning a treat.


Included are several lively songs (plus a plodding march for the foot-sore Wise Men) - all composed by a 12-year-old.


Pictures above and right show scenes from a romping performance at Scoil Noamh Eoin, County Laois, in the Irish Republic. Others are from the well-lit but darker-hued performance at Living Waters Lutheran College, western Australia.

 

See below for a press report on the play's very first performance -

given on Sark in the Channel Islands in December 2014. 

Use of the play on a non-profit basis is totally free throughout the world, 

and you're welcome to join the Song Project too!
