Christmas Touring Repertoire
NEW THIS YEAR!
The Innkeepers’ Christmas
By Anne Kennedy Brady
Directed by Nathan Jeffrey
“Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Bar Jonah Inn! Close to all the Bethlehem action, serving all your Bethlehem needs!” Except, of course, for that one very unusual night. As innkeepers Jacob and Miriam whiz about accommodating strange requests and stranger guests with their trademark humor and wit, a desperate plea to use their stable makes them pause; if this is the advent of God’s Child, what kind of family is He creating? The Innkeeper’s Christmas re-frames the first Christmas, drawing laughter and insight from the unexpected ways God alters expectations.

The Christmas Visit
By Scott Nolte
Directed by Jenny Cross
Love came down on Christmas and love continues to break the barriers in human hearts. The Christmas Visit enlightens and entertains as three Christmas stories come to life and people are changed by moments of selflessness, forgiveness, generosity, friendship, kindness and unconditional love. Taproot Theatre invites you to gather the family around to share in the stories, the laughter, and the spirit of Christmas.
