This Five-Act Play Is Written with Small Congregations in Mind
(but larger congregations can use it, too!)
This play involves six characters. Gabriel (or Gabriella!), Zechariah, Elizabeth, Mary, Joseph, and Jesus and John the Baptist as boys. Four acts involve just two characters. One act involves three characters.
Easy to Stage
Staging this play involves no elaborate sets (unless you want to get fancy).
Rehearsals are easy to schedule because the Acts involve only two or three characters at a time.
No or Low Cost
Costumes and props are easily found. 2×2 gives each congregation the right to copy the play for their cast members.
