A Christmas Carol in Bethlehem is an adaptation of Dickens' classic 19th century English tale that places Scrooge in Bethlehem at the birth of Christ. Obsessed with making money, the Innkeeper Scrooge has no room in his heart for humanity, and no room in the inn for Mary and Joseph! Through an inventive blend of scriptural narrative, story development and traditional English carols and hymns, this program conveys with great warmth and charm the promise of salvation for all through the birth of Emmanuel, God with us. A timeless classic, certain to be a popular favorite, flexible and easy to teach, in the tradition of The Living Créche. Approximately 30 minutes.
