EASTCHESTER, N.Y. – The Eastchester Community Church will put Christ back in Christmas this weekend with its sixth annual living Nativity musical.
The performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday; at 10:30 a.m. Sunday; and at 9 p.m. Christmas Eve. The 45-minute visual show features a real stable built inside the church, a manger, actors and live animals.
Narrated by the Rev. Eric J. Hall, the manger will have bales of hay and scattered loose hay to re-create the appearance of a genuine stable. Residents will be in costume playing the roles of Mary, Joseph, shepherds, a singing angel and the Three Kings. Mary and baby Jesus will be carried into the stable by a donkey.
There will also be two “fat sheep” to accompany the characters that will be singing the Nativity story.
