OF A KING
December 13, 14 & 15
Birthday of a King tells the story of a fabled and whimsical village that is getting ready for an annual birthday bash, but they have no idea for whom it’s celebrated! On the eve of the party, the new schoolteacher, Miss Byrd, interrupts an official town meeting and proceeds to teach a history lesson. The history of the true King, a rebellious Royal Herald turned Jester turned King of Strings, a broken Ballerina, and the young Prince who gives his life to save her unfolds on the stage in unique musical style. The story culminates when the empowered Prince swings his sword, declaring freedom for stage and audience alike.
Birthday of a King has entertained and inspired audiences of all ages in the U.S.A. as well as internationally, since its first performance in December 2000. Venues have ranged from an 8,000 seat concert arena to a church sanctuary that holds 100. It has been staged in a palace theater in Russia as well as a high tech theater in Japan. The show is available in the English, Russian and Spanish languages.
Birthday of a King is a unique and fresh approach to sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is appropriate for any time of the year, but has been used primarily at Christmas, although it is a very non-traditional Christmas setting. For some churches, however, it has become a Christmas tradition!
