Straight Outta Bethlehem

A Christmas Story-Inspired Musical for Kids
Created by Christy Semsen
Arranged by Daniel Semsen
  • Musical Theme…God is with us and we don’t have to be alone! All of us can be adopted into God’s family.
  • A new twist as told by eyewitnesses the night the Baby King arrived in Bethlehem!
  • Heartwarming story with life lessons kids can take with them!
  • Featuring Twila LaBar and Joel Lindsey’s “Orphans of God”

Here we are in the “sleepy” little village of Bethlehem. But in this tiny town something huge and miraculous is about to happen…the birth of the Messiah! Right in the midst of all the action is an irresistibly intrepid and indefatigable group of orphans who reside at the Inn of Bethlehem. Meet Starr, Zoolie, John Luke, Gertie, Magnus, and Blake (oh, and shepherds Zeke and Ziggy!). Along with Trixie, who runs the inn, this loveable ragamuffin group of characters will put a smile on your lips and a song in your heart as they unveil the story of Christmas and how God sent His only Son to be born, STRAIGHT OUTTA BETHLEHEM. As eyewitnesses to the holy, blessed event, their special re-telling of the story is sure to shine a bright new light on the importance of our Savior’s birth!
