Camel Lot

Introduction

Not even Broadway has taken you to a place quite like this!

Take your kids, and congregation on a delightful journey to the manger … by camel! As you’ve come to expect from Little Big Stuff Music, the new musical company just for kids, Camel Lot is filled with the coolest music; a fun, funny, but Biblically rock-solid message; and the best time your kids will have anywhere this Christmas!

Summary

Beth has been practicing hard for the church Christmas pageant. Her Dad (who runs a car dealership), may be too busy with Christmas car sales to make it to the program. Exhausted from practice, with lines from Luke 2 swirling in her mind, she drifts off to sleep. Transported by Beth’s imagination (and a sound effect or two!) we all “wake up” in Bethlehem on a very special day, and in a most unusual place — the Camel Lot! It doesn’t take long, inside Beth’s topsy-turvy dream world, to encounter camel shoppers, sales people, shepherds, wise men, and a very familiar story, told in a fun and refreshing new way!

It’s all here … music your kids really want to sing, a story everybody will love, and the clear, simple message of Jesus the Savior, sent to our world to redeem sinful humanity. In short, there’s simply not … a better place to spend Christmas with your kids choir this year, than here in — Camel Lot!
