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.

This musical was awesome. I love the coziness of the theatre because it allows you to catch every beautiful powerful note that flows from the singers. I actually paid full price for one ticket because goldstar was sold out of discount ones. ...continued

We saw this play last year, loved it, and came back in 2011 bringing a friend. It was still wonderful, filled with colorful costumes, soul stirring singing, and a sincerity that makes you feel as if you are in a church rather than a playhouse on H...continued

The cast was awesome! So gifted with voices that were superior instruments in the case of some. The musical accompaniment was fabulous and this musical was extremely uplifting!

Wonderful costumes and singing. Very talented cast, with a bit of humor incorporated into the telling of the Christmas story in the first half. Gospel sing during second half was very well-done; would have given 5 stars, but gospel singing isn't...continued

I came to see this show not knowing what to expect. To my surprise, there was a lot of singing--and not by a group of amateurs. I was thoroughly impressed with the amount of talent on the stage! The songs were moving and there was a twist of...continued
