Synopsis by Tracie Cooper
This production adds a new twist to the timeless Christmas story of Jesus' birth -- namely, the perspective of Mary and Joseph. The two parents discuss the details surrounding their betrothal and their planned methods of child rearing. The shepherds' initial discovery of the baby Jesus nestled inside a manger is also touched upon, and the entire program is highlighted by a spirited musical soundtrack and artistic representations of Biblical texts. Royal Crown: The King Born in Bethlehem is geared toward elementary school-aged kids.
