To celebrate Christmas 2013, Central Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) will present “A Child is Born” on Sunday, Dec. 22nd at 6 p.m. at the church, 4711 Westside Drive in Dallas.
The one-act play by Stephen Vincent Benét is a Christmas drama that tells the story of the birth of Jesus through the eyes of an innkeeper and his wife.
It was first performed on radio Dec. 21, 1942 by the famous husband and wife team of Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne. In the Golden Age of Television (late 1940’s to early 1960’s) the play was often performed during the holiday season on popular anthology series like The Philco Television Playhouse, General Electric Theater and Kraft Television Theater.
A grand finale to Central’s year-long 150th anniversary celebration, the play will be performed on-stage, this Christmas season. Directed by Ed DeLatte of Westside Players, narrated by Dr. Debbie Chisolm and Rev. Heather Santi-Brown, it will feature a talented cast of actors.
The performance is free and open to the public. Following the performance, Central will host “A Taste of Christmas” in the church’s fellowship hall for the cast and audience. All are welcome.
