Introducing a new Christmas musical for 2019... "Away In a Mango"!
A festive holiday cruise to Christmas Island aboard the luxurious Yuletide turns perilous for nine passengers on a day shopping excursion when their boat, the SS Mango, is caught in an unexpected storm and washed ashore on a deserted island. Deserted, that is, except for the island’s lone inhabitant, Johnny Coconut, marooned there years before. Will they be found in time for the ship’s big Christmas Concert? (hint: yes, they will!) What’s Johnny’s story? All aboard for a totally fresh, totally fun Christmas adventure for kids as they join the intrepid castaways of the SS Mango. After all, the story of the birth of Jesus is the story of lost people, unable to save themselves, being rescued by the long-awaited Savior!
