This utterly charming Christmas musical has resonated with so many children and adults alike. It is an unconventional Christmas story that takes place in a home for orphaned and abandoned children. Nicklaus and Meena Eliffe are the house parents in one of the cottages of the children’s home. But they are far more than that. The Eliffe household shares the undertaking of making toys for all the other children who live in the children’s home cottages. The toys are distributed every Christmas Eve. This Christmas, however, the new headmaster of the children’s home forbids the gifts to be given out. The result is an opportunity for the children learn to trust that the Lord indeed does work all things together for good. This is a joyful, touching story of love, acceptance and the confident assurance that comes with the certainty of knowing your true identity in Christ. All presentations of “Say Nicklaus!” will be at 3:00 Saturdays, with three special Sunday matinees on December 3rd, 10th and 17th. We’re excited to announce that in conjunction with our presentation of the musical, “Say Nicklaus!”, Chip Polk will be releasing his new book, which is an adaptation of this play entitled, “Say Nicklaase, A Great & Wonderful Story”.

Elijah, one of the most enigmatic of all people in the Bible, pits his unshakable confidence in God against the combined occult power of 800 pagan prophets in one of the boldest, and most colorful acts of faith ever recorded.

Ahab, the King of Judah, corrupted by his brazenly evil wife, Jezebel, rejected the God of Israel and embraced worship of the false pagan gods, Baal and Asherah. God’s prophet, Elijah, narrates his own confrontation with the horde of pagan prophets, sharing his wry insight and observations with the audience, as God leads him to a resounding victory of faith, and an epic footrace across the Jezreel Valley as he flees the wrath of Jezebel. One of the more engaging and humorous episodes in biblical history comes to life on the Ragtown stage in Spring 2018.

King David is described in the Bible as a man after God’s own heart, yet one who succumbed to his very human weakness. In spite of his great moral failing, David penned the most beautiful passages of the Bible. The Psalms he wrote resonate with every Christian, as David fully reveals his heart, from serene heights of joy in the Spirit, to morose depths of despair in the flesh.

The Psalmist explores in words and music, the relationship of this flawed hero of faith with the Holy Spirit. Throughout his life the Spirit would come to David, inspiring the beautiful words of His songs, only to depart, leaving him longing for the One who could impart the confidence and peace of knowing that God was with him. Unlike David, we who are in Christ today are incredibly blessed to have the Holy Spirit with us in every moment of every day. But that is a reality we so often fail to embrace.

Bethlehem is  possibly the most thought-provoking of all the plays we have produced on the Ragtown stage. It begins with the creation of man, and ends with the birth of Jesus. The play presents the birth of the Savior from God’s perspective, which reveals the depths of God’s devotion to mankind, even before He breathed life into Adam. Knowing fully all that would occur, including the sacrifice of His life that Jesus would have to make, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit still chose to create man. Bethlehem is  possibly the most thought-provoking of all the plays we have produced on the Ragtown stage.

It presents a profound truth: That Jesus, willingly stepped away from HIs glory in Heaven and into the womb of Mary, to be born as a humble and helpless infant, solely for the purpose of offering each of us the opportunity for salvation through His death and resurrection. It is more than a story of the birth of     Christ. It is a testimony of a love beyond comprehension…for us.
