Dickens Dessert Theater – “The Nazareth Evening News”
Sunday, 2:00 p.m. & 6:00 p.m.; Grace Church, 223 N. West Street

The Nazareth Evening News (Dessert Theater)

The town of Bethlehem is on the verge of a world changing event, the birth of our Savior. A young couple expecting a baby has traveled to Bethlehem to be counted as part of the Roman census. Mary’s baby is about to be born and Joseph looks for a place for them to stay. The audience will get to experience the events of the night through the reporting of the Nazareth Evening news. In addition, field reporters will bring breaking news updates, interview eyewitnesses who saw the choir of angels, and report on the census “debacle.” Shepherds, Wisemen, and even Mary and Joseph are interviewed by eager reporters excited to get the story out. This version of the nativity story creatively and humorously mixes biblical truths with present day elements and jargon.

Two performances – 2:00 pm & 6:00 pm
Limited seating at each performance – Donation per ticket – $5.00
Call for tickets at (814) 419-8128




“…and it was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge.  May that be truly said of us!  And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God Bless Us, Every One!”
