Showstoppers will be taking the Christmas stage by storm this year with an original musical written & directed by mother & daughter duo—Kelly Makin & Courtney Voss.
The story begins with the audience seeing Mary, Joseph & Jesus at the manger. shepherds, wise men, & townspeople all come to see the baby, as directed by the angels. Through the use of a narrator (Lynn Weil) & a very inquisitive child, (Brayson Thevenard) the audience learns that one of the wise men was so in awe of the sight & gift of the baby Jesus that he becomes Santa Claus in order to share the gift of Jesus every year & keep the message alive
In order to help him in his mission, angels become Christmas fairies, & other cast members who had been shepherds & townspeople become elves, toy soldiers & reindeer. In addition, Santa meets Mrs. Claus—the love of his life. Things go very well for a long time until Santa starts to feel as though he might be taking away from the real story of Christmas. He flees from Christmas town, until Jesus himself explains to him that everyone has a purpose & his life has meaning.
