It was pretty heartbreaking to have to cancel an almost sold-out performance last Saturday, but with the snow and ice, we just had no choice. Fortunately, we had a nice crowd on Sunday…and we still have two more performances of this beautiful Christmas musical remaining. If you haven’t seen it this year, I hope you’ll try to make it to Ragtown this weekend for one of the final two performances of Bethlehem.
It’s a gratifying thing to see how deeply this play touches people. From the very beginning, we set out to make Ragtown a beautiful and entertaining experience that families and church groups could enjoy together. But we have a mission deeper than entertainment, and that is to vividly illuminate the infinitely loving person and personality of Jesus, and the glorious promise of the New Covenant of Grace that He was born to bring mankind. There is no time better to encounter that powerful truth that at the beginning of Christmas.
Some seats for Saturday the 15th are still available, and there are plenty of great seats for the final Sunday performance on the 16th. Both shows begin at 3:00 with our concert, and I’ve got a stage full of guest artists performing with me this weekend!
Glenn Polk, Jay Young, Chris Smith, Sarah Smith, Amy Weems, and both of my kids, Jency Anciso and Jordan Polk will be joining me on stage for a very special Christmas concert. I’m loving this new variety of musical guests. And, of course, I’m always especially excited when Jency and Jordan can make it down to sing and play with their old man.
It’s going to be a wonderful time! Robin has everything beautifully decorated for Christmas…including the ladies room of course. Twila and the gang will have hot cocoa and other goodies ready. And Glenn has assembled a wonderful cast to present a play that will make you think about the birth of Jesus in a whole new way. Why don’t you make a few calls, gather your family and friends and join us!
