Eek! The Musical
Plans are in place for a wonderful Christmas musical the second Sunday in Advent, December 8th. There will be an afternoon service which includes the presentation of “Eek!, the Musical.” It’s a fun mash-up of two stories....the tale of the farmer’s wife with the carving knife, and the visit of Mary and Joseph to the inn which the innkeeper and his wife run.
The story stresses hospitality and the evils of self-centeredness as represented by the farmer’s wife and her mother. It has a wonderful part for 3-5 year old children who portray the mice and who just need to be able to “eek” on cue. The older children play the part of travelers coming to the inn and sing some beautiful Christmas carols. We plan to invite the Montessori pre-school to join us in our own take on hospitality.
If you would like to be a part of this entertaining and instructional production, please contact Dr. Donna Whited via email.
