Starry Night, Noisy Night

The 2nd and 3rd grade classes presented the Christmas musical Starry Night, Noisy Night on the evening of November 27. The musical began with the exciting song "Starry, Noisy Night," a twist on the classic tune "O Little Town of Bethlehem," but instead of a quiet, idyllic scene, Bethlehem was a noisy and busy place.

In the busy town, the cows and donkey worried about whether Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus would be able to rest with all of the "Sounds, Sights, and Stars." After the cows calmed everyone down for the sweet lullaby "Away in A Manger," angels came and with their "Angel Echoes," caused quite a noise disturbance for the shepherds!

With the shepherds came their sheep, but there was so much to see that one sheep needed to know "What Child Is This?" before she could pull her attention away from the excitement outside. Then, the chickens who were so distracted by their phones that they had not yet seen what was happening right in front of them were encouraged to "Open Our Eyes" to notice what was going on.

Once all the animals turned to Jesus, the audience was invited as well to turn from all that distracted them and turn toward Jesus on a "Still, Silent Night."

We Three Spies

The 4th and 5th grade classes presented the Christmas musical We Three Spies on the evening of December 11. They invited their audience to join them as they embarked on a spy mission. The show began on a "Spylent Night" when the "Undercover" spies received a mission from a client, Ms. Harriet King, who revealed she was worried about suspicious activity at a local warehouse. The spies agreed to investigate, but soon, the true character of Ms. King was revealed in "I Don't Like Christmas."

Meanwhile, the three spies, E, L, and F were at the warehouse and found themselves pulled into joining the Nativity play and community donation efforts of the students there, joining in songs such as "God With Us," "Glory," and "Hope Was Born This Night."

Ms. King appeared to be successful in her mission to ruin Christmas, but with faith in God, the small acting troupe kept their spirits up while singing "Be Still My Soul" and carrying on with their Nativity play. In doing so, everyone, including Ms. King, learned the true meaning of Christmas– that God gave us the greatest Christmas gift in His Son Jesus, and we give our lives back to Him in response.

Because of their faith and kindness despite her evil intentions, Ms. King's heart was changed, and in the end, all sang together about the Good News of Christmas in "I Love Christmas."
