The play is the story of Joe, who sells trees at his corner Christmas tree lot.  He is struggling with the deep hurt of his daughter’s rebellious marriage to his not ideal son-in-law, but is still able to share the Christmas spirit to his customers who are on a quest to find the perfect tree. In helping others to look past the trees imperfections, Joe, whose life hasn’t turned out the way he had dreamed, is reminded of God’s perfect gift that shows us how to find forgiveness and acceptance. This warm and humorous play with a special children’s Nativity scene will add to your Christmas celebration in reminding us of the true reason for the season – Jesus.

Admission is free and refreshments with the cast will be held after each performance.

As they explore what the prophets said would happen in “boring Bethlehem,” they become part of the story unfolding on the night Jesus was born.
