The LIVING NATIVITY is sponsored by the Uxbridge Baptist church, as a gift to the community. It all began in 1974, with annual productions on the main street of Uxbridge, for several years. After a number of years off, the Living Nativity returned in 1985, and has been produced alternate years by Co-producers, Joan Wideman, and Brian Evans, working with a strong team of over 25 preparation and behind the scene volunteers. It was last produced in 2013, and drew crowds in the 1000’s, even during a memorable ice storm to Centennial Park. The village of Bethlehem is re-created, to form the backdrop for an exciting and colourful depiction of the very first Christmas. Everyone enjoys the pageantry of the Roman Soldiers on horseback, the live animals, the colourful costumes, and the majestic Christmas music and narration. Your crèche will take on a whole new meaning as you watch the story unfold before your very eyes.
This year, the story of the simple birth of Christ will once again come alive in Uxbridge. A cast of over 125 will live out the events leading up to the moment when the Baby Jesus was born, in the humble stable, and then follow the travels of the shepherds and the wisemen’s entourage, as they come to pay homage to the newborn King.
As in the past, the entire community of Uxbridge has taken the production to heart. The local council and many businesses have endorsed the LIVING NATIVITY production again this year. Be sure to mark the dates on your calendar. Invite your family and friends, for an evening in Uxbridge that is unforgettable.
