Kathie's Note: We had such a great experience with this work. Whether your use seniors for your SOCCER team, or three or more adults, teens or older children, the interplay between the groups keeps the kids and audience on their toes. The boys (and girls) loved the soccer theme and wearing the Christmas Soccer Team Jerzeess in performance and we incorporated our first graders for the Carol Sing at the end. But the carols are spread from beginning to end, making this another “Christmasy” musical. Favorite original songs: “Always Emmanuel,” “Behold” and “I Receive You, Jesus.”
