Synopsis: Joseph and Mary must go to Bethlehem to pay their taxes, but Mary is expecting a baby. So they need a donkey to help them on their journey without delay. Doves, owls and cockerels try to find a suitable one, but the donkeys have their good reasons for not being able to go. Finally, and without knowing what a special mission this is, one obliging little donkey volunteers, a decision it never regrets!
With entertaining songs and dances, this Mini-musical gives children a different viewpoint of Christmas – that of the animals who happened to be there. It also shows that sometimes volunteering for difficult tasks leads to unexpected rewards!
