The Shepherd's Nativity: ©
A Three Act Christmas Play
By Davidae Stewart


Cast:

Shepherd 1/Justus King 2 Mary
Shepherd 2 King 3 Joseph
King 1 Gabriel


Act One

Setting: Pasture nighttime
Props: poster board or foam board life size sheep, fencing, huge dangling star bigger than a human head large enough for an audience to see. Foam board rocks, plastic grass carpet, rock type object for shepherd to rest on.
Casting in this Act: Gabriel, Shepherd 1/Justus, Shepherd 2

Scene opens: One shepherd is asleep, while the other one is watching the flock. Gabriel stands under the North Star.

Gabriel: (He walks over to a dozing, but standing Justus and taps him on the shoulder) "Justus, wake up your friend."

Justus: (His mouth drops. He leans down and taps his friend's shoulder.)

Shepherd 2: Does not move, but grumbles. He is still asleep.

Justus: Nudges Shepherd2 with his feet, then kicks him awake (fake kick). "Get up!"

Wait for any giggles from the audience.

Shepherd 2: He scrambles off the ground. Then rubs his backside. Turns toward Justus. Speaks drowsily. "What? Is it my turn to watch the sheep?"

Justus: Points his fidgety finger at Gabriel. His mouth still open.

Shepherd2: What, Justus? He turns around toward the direction of Justus' pointing, then turns back around fast. He shouts. "Justus, you are..." He stops. Looks at the audience. Then turns back around slowly until he sees Gabriel. Gabriel is standing there moving his wings or something. He almost hops in Justus arms. He speaks as if very scared. "Yikes, what is that?"

Justus: Shakes his head. "I don't know, but he knows my name."

Gabriel: Steps closer. "I am Gabriel, an angel and messenger of the Holy, Holy, Holy God, who has come to give you a message to pass on to whoever is willing to hear it." Gabriel draws them closer with his arms. "Come."

Shepherd2 and Justus come closer to him. As the come closer Gabriel begins to sing: Go tell it on the Mountain.

The children's choir comes in on the chorus. The cast and the choir sings the rest of the song.

The end of Act One.
