Christmas At Brightmoor

A Christmas for All Time!

This Broadway-style musical tells the story of Bill—a man who is too busy for Christmas—and his encounter with a mysterious stranger named Bartholomew who reveals the “spirit in the hearts of Christmases past.”  Together, they take a moving musical journey through time—visiting the shepherds at the nativity; a medieval castle; a time when Christmas was outlawed in 1657 England; an 1845 orphanage; a stirring freedom scene in 1855; immigrants coming to American in 1902; a 20th century America by the decades; and, in the moving conclusion, return to the present where Bill comes face-to-face with his own hard-heartedness and need for a Savior.  Audiences will experience music, drama, live animals, and flying angels that capture the wonder of Christmas and how a personal encounter with Jesus Christ is the only way to bring true joy to Christmas today.
