The Shepherds of Saint Francis
The Shepherds of Saint Francis
By Lowell Swortzell.

Cast: 5m., 3w., flexible extras, plus the audience, which plays the animals. St. Francis returns to us to stage the first Christmas pageant. When he learns that the shepherds don't know the story of Bethlehem and that the lord of the Manor has forgotten its significance, Francis realizes he must do something to make everyone around him experience those events. What better way than by reliving them? And that's exactly what happens here for today's audiences as well, as they take active roles in this play-within-a-play. Under the direction of St. Francis, everyone comes together to experience why the tradition he started so long ago has become a lasting part of our holiday celebrations. Filled with memorable characters and rich comedy, The Shepherds of St. Francis is an ideal play for schools, churches, community centers, and hospitals, and for everyone who believes that a pageant is an essential joy of Christmastime. Area staging. Approximate Running Time: 65 minutes.
