WMB’s Kids’ Christmas Musical program is an exciting ministry that invites kids in Grades 1-8 to make new friends, discover the real Christmas story and have fun singing, acting and dancing.
From September until December, kids rehearse once a week, putting together a full production that spans one weekend of December. The production team leads and disciples these kids for four months, building into them confidence, determination and joy as they tell Jesus’ birthday story for hundreds who come to see the presentation. All community kids in Grades 1-8 are welcome to participate.
“The Little Drummer Dude”
About the Show
The up-and-coming Persia’s Traveling Band – or PTB, as their fans call them – are out on their biggest tour yet with their little “roadie” Abel. Along the way, they meet three Wise Men, who are following a star in search for a King who has just been born. With the possibility of playing for a royal audience, PTB decides to join the Wise Men and make the journey to Bethlehem. What better way for the band to be discovered and rise to the top the charts than playing for a King?
During this fantastic journey, Abel unveils his passion for playing the drums. While the band doesn’t take his playing seriously, the Wise Men notice his talent and encourage his efforts, knowing that he has a very special gift. One of the Wise Men expresses to Abel that perhaps he might even get to play his drum for the King…Will Abel get his wish?
To learn the outcome—and finally get to meet this King to be born in Bethlehem – you’ll have to come along on the journey with Abel, Persia’s Traveling Band, the three Wise Men, and Abel’s fantastically whacky and fun camel, Hakim! Through The Little Drummer Dude, kids will learn that God can do amazing things through everyone, even if they’re “just a little dude.”
