aA Simple Christmas Pageanta is a multi-generational Christmas program. It is brief (35 minute), intentionally simple and reminiscent of a slower gentler time (think "A Prairie Home Companion" meets" A Charlie Brown Christmas"). There are only 2 speaking parts; A Storyteller and Saint Nicholas. Cindy Sterling and Sheldon Curry have created a hassle free, inexpensive alternative to big Christmas musicals. It requires little rehearsal time and few financial resources and is extremely family friendly. The music and carols are, for the most part, familiar, and the congregation sings along with every piece. It is intended for folks who want to provide a relaxed Christmas program the whole neighborhood will attend and enjoy. "A Simple Christmas Pageant" is a warm community building Christmas worship event, sure to become an annual tradition.
