Allow your children's choir to take you on a trip of time and imagination. Imagine the story of the first Christmas being covered by a television news network, like CBS, CNN or Fox News. Tune in as the Nosy News Network presents, "Mayhem in Bethlehem: 30 Minutes Special Report." Poignant and entertaining, yet easily staged and rehearsed, this musical is accessible for children's choirs of all sizes. Get to know Noah Lott, Vesta Gates, Freddy Factoid, Lorna Limelight, Randy Looney and more as they investigate the "who, what, when, where and why" of the Christmas Story. Though long on imagination and laughs, the heart of this musical is the wonderful, true story of the gospel. In the midst of the mayhem is the matchless message, "Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel." (Isaiah 7:14) As our skeptical Nosy News reporters get closer to Bethlehem, the mounting evidence for the Messiah gradually convinces them of the authenticity of Christ, as well as their need for the Savior. Surrendering their skepticism, as well as their hearts, they kneel at the manger to worship the newborn King.
