The Little Play of the Nativity
December 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Eighth Grade is pleased to present “The Little Play of the Nativity.” Written by Arvia MacKaye Ege, a teacher at the Rudolf Steiner School in New York City, it is adapted from the medieval Shepherds’ Play. Such plays were performed by parishioners in European churches in the Middle Ages to bring the Christmas story, simply yet vividly, to the common people. At the Steiner School in New York, the Little Play is presented every year by the Eighth Grade. Melissa Merkling, who appeared in it herself in 1966, brought it to HVWS in 2010.
