A Morning Star Christmas

On Friday and Saturday, the 21st & 22nd, of December, our friends at Theater of the Word Incorporated will produce a variety show called A Morning Star Christmas in the Pope John Paul II Theater at The Cardinal Rigali Center in Shrewsbury. Evening performances Friday and Saturday start at 8 P.M., and there will be a 2 P.M. matinée on Saturday. Credo members may remember the founder and creative director of the Theater of the Word, Kevin O'Brien, from the September Forum. And we know quite a few Credo members attended the first two shows at the Rigali Center.

The show will have Christmas carols (not "holiday songs"), comedy, and two one-act plays. The program features The Morning Star Players, two young women, Mary LaHood and Elizabeth Bauer, who perform shows across the country with themes of chastity, modesty, pro-life issues, the lives of the saints and other topics. They're making their St. Louis debut in this show, and would love to be booked for other shows, which are performed mainly for young adults.

The two plays were written just for us.

WHO KILLED CHRISTMAS? - A PROPHECY FOR MODERN TIMES stars Ebenezer Scrooge, Bing Crosby, Jimmy Stewart, and Andy Griffith. The Spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Future visit Scrooge again to help him recapture the joy he felt after their last visit.

MAKING ROOM - THE STORY OF THE INNKEEPER'S WIFE - Have you ever wondered who told Mary & Joseph there was no room at the inn? In this bittersweet tale, we tell the story of the Innkeeper's Wife, a woman who has no room for shepherds, her neighbors, or even the Holy Family on that blessed night - until something she sees in Mary makes her cold heart begin to thaw.
