A Christmas Musical for Children

|Click to Listen: The Unfriendly Beasts (Excerpts)|
|"While they were in Bethlehem, the time came for Mary to deliver her
child. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths,
and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn."
The Unfriendly Beasts is a charming, humorous story of the manger animals who must share their crowded stable with Mary, Joseph and the infant Jesus. When word reaches the stable that the animals must make room for humans, the animals protest, and Mayor Mouse leads them in preparing a "No Vacancy" sign.
But, as the Light of Salvation gradually illumines the stable darkness, their hearts are turned from coldness to compassion. Soon, the "Unfriendly Beasts" become "Friendly Beasts," and the entire stable joins in welcoming the holy family. Will you join them? Will you open your heart to Jesus?
Recommended for grades K-6, this musical is approximately 20 minutes long and is flexibly designed for children's choirs, Sunday schools or Christian schools. For special seasonal programs or Christmas worship, you'll delight in The Unfriendly Beasts (No Room in the Stable).
