Springfield pageant retells Christmas story

For the 27th season, the Springfield Area Nativity Theatre Association (SANTA) will retell the story of Christmas under the stars Friday and Saturday.

One performance of the Springfield Nativity Pageant 2012 will be presented each evening beginning at 7 p.m., in Riverside Park.

No admission is charged and there is ample seating in the north bleachers of the athletic field. Attendees are urged to dress warmly and comfortably and to bring sta-dium blankets and warmers.

The pageant retells the story of Jesus' birth, from the moment the angel appears to Mary announcing that she would bear a son to the time the Wise Men leave Bethlehem.

The story is told in a half-hour program staged in front of the Springfield home football bleachers with beautifully designed backdrops, abode-type houses and a stable, all of which takes guests back more than 2,000 years.

Several hundred local people are involved as cast, cho-rus and stagehands.

The production features a choir and a live manger scene with a variety of animals, including camels, in a natural outdoor setting.

Guests will walk to the staging area along a path lighted with kerosene-burning lanterns, see townsfolk selling their wares, be counted by census takers and greeted by Roman guards.
