Christmas Foretold is a theatrical musical production, based on the powerful nativity of Jesus. Inspired and written by Bonnie Deuschle, Christmas Foretold was designed to reveal this beloved story in a fresh and innovative way. This production portrays three main characters: a powerful, rich king, a shy, young shepherd boy and a poor, old woman, who embark on separate journeys – IN SEARCH OF A KING. As you follow their search, you will find identity and inspiration in them as they capture your heart and impact your life forever.
With the music of Bonnie Deuschle, along with traditional Christmas carols, and other well loved songs backed by the Celebration Choir, you are sure to experience the magnificence of this presentation. The technical direction of Rick Derrick and creative direction of Bonnie Deuschle and their teams, unfolds an extravagant light display, a Broadway set, brilliant dancing, a vibrant children’s choir, glow sticks and a twist on the traditional shepherds, kings and angels of this age old story.
The musical premiered in December 1992, in Harare, Zimbabwe, at the Harare International Conference Centre (HICC), and was an instant success. When it was presented again in December 1994, the tickets were sold out before the doors opened. The demand for the musical drama has brought it back to the stage this December, 2012. “Christmas Foretold – In Search of a King” is the “MUST SEE” Christmas event of the year in Zimbabwe. Bring the whole family to the greatest story ever told!
