A musicalization of the birth of Christ. The time is now, the action is everywhere. Not unlike Jesus Christ Superstar
and Godspell, O Happy Day
inventively and enthusiastically weaves a charm of unbridled innocence. This catchy musical tells the Christmas story in an excitingly new and young way. They swing into the sort of thing creative actors and directors relish: delightful improvisation-like scenes with actors often switching roles as the story progresses. The musical eventually leads to a rousing climax and becomes a celebration embracing the entire audience.
O Happy Day has been presented throughout the country, including major productions in St. Louis, Utica, NY, and at Lincoln Center.
"The play has a refreshing approach to the Christmas story" -- there is song, dance and hilariously funny moments -- without detracting from the religious significance. - Yarmouth (MA) Register
"... will appeal to both adults and children." - Westchester (NY) Weekend
