Christmas plays and dramas
WE did not see a Play this Christmas season, but I enjoy Christmas plays. To me it is more ‘real’ than a movie using professional actors. I am inclined to Out door dramas as I have posted here before. WE have enjoyed the ones we have been privileged to see.
Out door dramas:
‘From this day Forth’ the Waldension story, Valdese, NC.
“Lost Colony”,, NC coast line Manteo, NC(?).
Hatfields and McCoys…. Kentucky or West Virginia
‘Horn in the West’…. Boone, NC
“Trail of Tears”… Cherokee, NC
“Oklahoma”,,,,, West Virginia
“Follow the River”… Virginia
"Steven Foster Story", Bardstown, KY
But back to plays, I especially love kids plays when they take time to wave at mama, daddy or grandparents during the performance.
I was once in a play and was supposed to sing a verse of ‘We Three KIngs”. I started, “Myrrh is mine and forgot every word, I sang da da da da to the tune for the entire verse. Of course everyone got a kick out of that except me.
Churches have good plays, I have been involve in a few, it must be tough being a director of one of these, just trying to get everyone together for practice, but with all the stress they seem to run smooth.
We were fortunate to be near the Crystal Cathedral for Christmas and got to see their presentation. I enjoyed it, but it was too professional and glitzy, there were angels flying over head the whole time.
Any special outdoor drama or a Christmas Play in your past?
