Taproot Theatre's The Inkeeper's Christmas
Saturday, Dec 20, 2:00 pm

The Innkeepers’ Christmas
By Anne Kennedy Brady
Directed by Nathan Jeffrey
Presented by the Skagit Valley Lutheran Cluster
 
“Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Bar Jonah Inn! Close to all the Bethlehem action, serving all your Bethlehem needs!” Except, of course, for that one very unusual night. As innkeepers Jacob and Miriam whiz about accommodating strange requests and stranger guests with their trademark humor and wit, a desperate plea to use their stable makes them pause; if this is the advent of God’s Child, what kind of family is He creating? The Innkeeper’s Christmas re-frames the first Christmas, drawing laughter and insight from the unexpected ways God alters expectations.
 
Taproot Theatre Company creates theatre experiences to brighten the spirit, engage the mind and deepen the understanding of the world around us while inspiring imagination, conversation and hope.
