Born is the King is a nativity play for all ages, whether it’s your first or thousandth time hearing the story of Jesus’s birth. Follow the angel Gabriel as he narrates Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem for the birth of Jesus, and sing along to your favourite carols on the way. There’ll be shepherds, angels, innkeepers, Romans, wise men, and of course, more than a few sheep.
