Dressed in their Christmas costumes, 15 children from Celebration on the Rock Church brought smiles to the congregation at the church’s Christmas Service on Friday night last week when they presented a spectacular drama.

 

The performance illustrated the story of the birth of Jesus, with children acting as Mary and Joseph, the Three Wise Men, shepherds, animals, angels, and two young story tellers who acted as island mamas who narrated the historical event.

The children displayed confidence as they played the role of their character.

The audience applauded the children with adoration and high regard for their wonderful performance.

Eleven-year-old Esther Miller who played the role of Mary (Jesus’ mother), said she had been reciting her script until she knew her lines off by heart.

“I like acting and I especially like performing dramas that illustrate stories in the Bible,” Esther said.

“I am excited for Christmas, because it is time where our family comes together and celebrates the true meaning of Christmas and enjoy good company.”

Nine-year-old Maeva Fe’ao who acted as an elderly local “mama”, helped narrate the story of the birth of Jesus.

Maeva said Christmas was an important time to remember what Jesus has done for her.

Five-year-old Luca Rossouw said he liked playing as the shepherd in the drama because he got to dress up.
