A Miracle On 5th Avenue
A Spirit-Filled Christmas Play
Vince D Arnone
"Why, yes, Virginia...there is a Savior!" Looking for a fantastic, spirit-filled, unique christmas production for your church this year? Following the general plot of "Miracle on 34th Street," while substituting the person of Jesus- "Jess"- for Santa Claus, "Miracle on 5th Avenue- A Spirit-filled Christmas Play" evokes peels of laughter, tender and strong emotions, thrilling celebration, and a heart-warming, clear reminder of the real reason for Christmas. With a simple dialogue and set, and contemporary costumes, it is a production that almost any church, school, or ministry can easily cast, rehearse, and present to their community. Performed as a one-act stage play with recommended musical selections, it was a sold-out hit at Covenant Church of Pittsburgh, a large cross-cultural church in Pennsylvania. It can be used evangelistically or as an unforgettable, sentimental reflection on family and the beautiful love of Jesus. Purchase of script includes up to 6 royalty-free performances.
The Summary- Imagine a time in the not-too-distant future when Christmas is no longer celebrated save for the clandestine family gatherings of a few resilient "Christmas-ers" who hang on to their beliefs in an almost entirely secular society.
Now imagine Jesus returned, unannounced and in humble human form, to this world at Christmas time. What would He do? How would He go about touching the lives of the people He met? What kind of difference could He make for people in just a few short days- and especially in the life of Virginia- a precocious but delightful girl who is still mourning the loss of her father?
Jess re-invigorates Christmas by performing several miracles in front of the Macy's department store. His resulting fame and answers on his job application eventually land Him in court for a hearing on HIs sanity. He is exonerated and celebrated by the city.
Meanwhile, He befriends Virginia's mom as well as her love interest and his daughter. He eventually miraculously grants several of the prayers of young Virginia, including one last visit with her deceased soldier-father in a dream, and the restoration of a whole, loving family.
