Performed in p ageant style, the focus is on the positive action of the innkeeper. He did not turn Joseph and Mary away, he did a good thing – he took them in. You Took Them In contains nine original songs and arrangements of two carols.

You Took Them In is a traditional telling of the Christmas story. The cast of characters includes narrator(s), shepherds, angels, stars, villagers, the innkeeper and his wife, three kings, Mary and Joseph, and is flexible enough to accommodate large groups, but will work equally well with smaller groups.

The childrenwill love presenting You Took Them In and the congregation will find it one of the highlights of the season. Grade Level: 2-6. Perf. Time: Approx. 30 minutes.
