The Real Story of Christmas

A broadway-style musical presented by Crossroads Church

 

The Real Story of Christmas features Santa and Mrs. Claus directing a stage full of dancing, singing, and playful elves retelling some of the best-loved stories of Christmas. From Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer to The Night Before Christmas and even The Cajun Twelve Days of Christmas, these stories come alive in a way that has everyone laughing and singing along! The climax of the evening is when Santa and Mrs. Claus call for the REAL story of Christmas to be shared and the beautiful characters of the Nativity, including live camels and sheep, appear on stage bringing their gifts and adoration to the baby Jesus.

The set, costuming, music and choreography are fantastically professional. After the show, families dash to have their pictures taken with Santa, Mrs. Claus, Elf on the Shelf and the Nativity characters free of charge!

To give you a better idea of what the show is all about, we have posted a couple of our previous promotional video pieces below:
