We have seen Black Nativity numerous times, but this was the absolute BEST....by far!! The voices were simply EXCEPTIONAL!! We didn't want it to end! I hope this troop will perform it again next year! If so, we will make sure the Playhouse is...continued

The play was very inspirational and the gospel music was sensational. I give it an “A” for originality and really capturing the spirit of Jesus and the meaning of the season.
