Cast: 9 characters, plus extras. There was, in Paradise, a most unruly small boy known throughout Heaven as the Littlest Angel. He sang off-key and his halo was tarnished. Then he meets the Understanding Angel and explains how difficult it is for a boy who suddenly finds himself transformed into an angel and that he's unhappy because he longs for a box of toys that he left under his bed. A Heavenly Messenger brings the box and the Littlest Angel is overjoyed. But his isn't the only joy in Heaven, for Jesus is to be born. The Littlest Angel has only one thing to give and he places his box among the other splendid presents. It shines out from the heavens, becoming what men will forever call the Shining Star of Bethlehem. Bare stage w/ props. Approximate Running Time: 20 minutes.
