“Three Wise Men and a Baby”
Marco Island, FL: (November, 2013) . . . The Island Theater Company will present their annual Christmas production, Three Wise Men and a Baby, December 5th through December 8th. Three Wise Men and a Baby is sponsored by APM Custom Homes and their company's Christmas gift to the community. In addition, the theater company has partnered with Christmas Island Style, the Wesley United Methodist Church, the Island Dance Academy, and the Marco Island Historical Society to bring island families this very special Christmas production.
Three Men and a Baby, by the Fancy Monkey Studios, features the traditional Christmas story but with a fresh twist that provides both fun and life relevance for kids. This musical is loaded with humor, colorful characters, and a wide variety of holiday songs.
Finding the right gift for someone is often challenging and difficult. But what do you give someone who's birthday is the very reason for the season? If there ever was a time not to give a tie, this is it...so the wise men set off to find the perfect gift.
The show features local talented children who bring a bundle of energy, enthusiasm, and lots of their own perspective to this fun and exciting family production.
Three Wise Men and a Baby will run December 5th and 6th at 7:30 pm, and December 7th and 8th at 2:30 at the Rose History Auditorium, 180 S. Heathwood Drive. Doors open half hour prior to show times.
As part of the Christmas Island Style festivities this holiday production will be open to the public on a first come first served basis and tickets are not required. Bring the whole family and kick off your holiday in “island style”.
In keeping with the spirit of Christmas there will be a special collection for a local charity. The Wesley United Methodist Church has selected Grace Place as the recipient of this year's collection. The mission of Grace Place is to be a faith-based nonprofit neighborhood center to break the cycle of poverty by teaching literacy, language, and life skills to children and families at-risk in Golden Gate City.
With the help of your donations from Three Wise Men and a Baby, the Wesley United Methodist Church will be able to support many local families.
