A 2000 year-old story, retold.

Mary and Joseph are amazed when an angel tells them they are expecting a baby. They are full of joy, but their story is only beginning. Follow their journey with their donkey as they travel to the stable in Bethlehem. We meet simple shepherds, tending their sheep, three wise rulers following a star (not forgetting the camel) and Herod, who is sneakily trying to find out what is going on and stop it. Laughter, surprises and plenty of carols along the way all go to make up a magical retelling of the story of the first Christmas.

I find it immensely satisfying passing on the baton and continuing the culture of generosity of the many people who taught me. It’s a privilege and pleasure to nurture and teach so many talented young people and see them flourish in their career. Cathy Stewart, Head of Scenic Art
