The NATIVITY is a 25-minute performance that follows the Biblical account of the birth of Jesus Christ as told by the apostles in the New Testament. Scenes from the production include: Mary and Joseph traveling to Bethlehem, the ministering of angels and the journey made by the Three Kings to the stable.
The NATIVITY began as a small production in a church parking lot more than 20 years ago, and has grown to include more than 350 volunteers and 15,000 attendees last year. The cast includes: actors from a baby to 60-year-olds, musicians, set-designers, lighting directors, wardrobe stylists, and donkeys, sheep and goats – all helping to bring the story of Christmas to life.
A companion Creche Display, featuring a variety of nativity displays, and other holiday items will be adjacent to the stage and bleachers, and strolling musicians will entertain prior to each performance.
The not-for-profit production of The NATIVITY is presented by members of the Red Rock Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. For information, visit www.thenativitylv.com.
