Christmas Magic 2016

It certainly was ‘NO ORDINARY NIGHT’ when nearly 300 students from the Theatron presented a Nativity Pageant outlining the biblical story of the Birth of Jesus in a very colourful presentation including song, dance, rap, poetry and drama. The opening of the pageant made a significant statement in endorsing the true meaning of Christmas in terms of ‘Love’, ‘Joy’ and ‘Hope’ as every participant shared a gift of love to be given to lesser fortunate students to radiate Joy and inspire hope in the form of a useful stationery package.

The story then unfolded with a vibrant group of youngsters from Grades 6, 7, & 8 who opened this narration with a catchy song ‘No Ordinary Night’. The presence of a narrator took the audience back two centuries to the census ordered by Caesar Augustus which sets the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. A beautifully crafted manger made the biblical story come alive.

A lively cluster of rap angels and a pop group of shepherds gave the story a modern twist and a cuddly group of sheep from Pre-Grade and Grade One brought in the element of naughtiness from the youngsters. The moment of magic was when this entire group came alive wit
h a beautiful blend of the popular children’s song ‘This Little light of Mine’ run into the gospel rendition of the song. It certainly was a toe tapping moment at the very least with the audience.

All this wrapped up in a lively rendition of Christmas in terms of love, joy and laughter among friends and family all of which spell out the true promise of peace desired not just at Christmas but Always.
