A Christmas Messenger

A Christmas Messenger is a comedic look at the nativity story, told from the point of view of a very special character who is told there is no part for her in this year’s nativity play. Join us as we travel back to the time of Mary and Joseph on a mission to prove that Christmas, and the Nativity story, is for everyone.
