I thought it was well staged and delightful. I loved the dancing by the little girls with the scarves.i thought the two leads had lovely voices. it was a tight show…50 minutes. sweet …well performed. it told the story and was complete. Bravo to a job well done. The set design.. the costumes..and props were all enjoyable.

The entire cast did an exceptional job all around. The voices and the orchestra were extraordinary in every way possible — especially the leading young lady and her son. They express themselves as an actress and actor to tell the story in such a delightful way. Thus the acting was superb.
The message from the performance resonated well with all people of faith and goodwill. The Church got filled with an abundance of tear-jerking joy that triggered emotions from the hearts of people to rejoice and be thankful for each day we live in love, peace, and happiness with kindness and grace.
