We had a truly fantastic day yesterday with 4FrontTheatre. Their show ‘Back In Time For Christmas’ was seen by 260 pupils at Goldthorpe Primary School, 140 pupils from Sacred Heart Primary School and 137 people at the evening show at GPCC… and safe to say, they had a great time!
The show’s main character, Justin Time, had invented a time machine so we could travel back in time to witness the first Nativity (and find out if the wise men really did arrive at the same time as the shepherds and if the shepherds really did wear tea towels…)
Inevitably, the time machine didn’t work perfectly, and even with the help of the faithful ‘Clockie’, Justin encountered some historical events he hadn’t anticipated… meeting Charles Dickens and a caveman and finding a helper in George (aka Tim)…
Eventually, however, they arrived in Bethlehem, in time to meet an insurance salesman and an over-zealous innkeeper…
They found some not very smart shepherds:
… and eventually, after many chases and fights, managed to give some gifts to baby Jesus.
Maybe these ‘three wise men from the East’ learnt a lot about Jesus… and the real wise men were still travelling at the end as our intrepid time travellers made it back in time for Christmas to celebrate all our wonderful Saviour has done!
