Sheep-check. Shepherds-check. Manger-check. Four wise men-check. Four wise men?! rn rn It's that time of year again-Christmas! A season of tradition and family, celebration and pageantry, Christmas is a joyous time. Unfortunately, all too often the cherished Christmas Pageant becomes inevitably taxing on every director, costume maker and volunteer, but Dee Marrow simplifies the process in her one-of-a-kind book, Painless Pageants. Her three ready-to-use scripts can be performed with one rehearsal, and there are also costume and prop designs, music suggestions, and plenty of helpful ideas. Designed to eliminate the stress and aggravation from pageant planning, Painless Pageants encourages everyone involved to focus less on the pageant and more on the true meaning of Christmas. An essential tool for any Christian educator or pageant volunteer, Painless Pageants will have your mangers set, sheep in line, and three (or four!) wise men ready for action.
