    A Pastor’s Tale – The True Story of Silent Night

    by Todd Conner
    • 15 minutes
    • 1 - 5F; 2-7M; Max 7; Min 7

    Comedy, Simple Props, Teens

    A one-act Christmas comedy – a play with live music for young actors, telling the story of how the Christmas song “Silent Night” came to be written. Set in Oberndorf, Austria in 1818, the play is staged with live guitar in a Readers Theatre format. Memorized historical vignettes are combined with a straight-forward Christmas reading. But it soon goes “off-book” as student readers question the truth of the text they’re reading, and they end up squabbling on stage among themselves. Just when their performance seems doomed, Josef Mohr remembers a short poem he had been writing—Silent Night.
