continued “There is plenty of opportunity to sing along with familiar carols,” Davie said. “It’s a very interactive production. The cast tries to include and reach out to the audience and connect with them when singing and performing their roles.”
In addition, there will be a reception with cookies and refreshments after the show in the church hall.
“We want you to feel like family,” Davie said. “For us, the community is family here.”
Indeed, that’s why NSBC offers this presentation and opens it up to the entire community – to welcome everyone into the church as family.
“We feel strongly that this is a gift to the community,” Davie said. “At Christmas, there’s so much to celebrate. We really feel that all the hard work and time and effort we put in is worth it for Jesus’ birthday. We want to put together something that’s high-quality and family-oriented. We want this to be a family tradition for people as they celebrate the Christmas season.”
Marshall said that the show stresses the true meaning of the Christmas season.
“Rather than gifts, it’s when Christ came to the earth,” he said. “He has a fresh message of hope and salvation for those that believe. I want people to focus on the true meaning of Christmas.”
The show will take place at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9, 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10, and 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 11, at the church, 420 S. Main St., North Syracuse. All performances are interpreted for the deaf. Staff will be on hand to assist with parking, and attendees with special needs can be dropped off at the doors. For more information, visit the church’s Facebook page at Facebook.com/nsbcchristmas.
