We’re busy getting ready for our Christmas Play which will have two performances on Thursday, December 14th. Here’s a few suggestions for costumes:
Citizens/ Shepherds/ Innkeepers
will need an adult shirt or plain dressing gown (check/flannel preferable), with a belt around their waist; leggings/plain tracksuit pants; and a scarf/ tea-towel + stretchy headband(waistband of an old pair of tights) as a head-dress.
Here’s a picture of the Innkeepers from the last nativity:
Stars & Soldiers will need to be all in black, and we will provide tabards for them.
Infant Angels dress in white (could use an adult white t-shirt), with wings/ halo; 3rd/4th class Angels don’t need wings, and can wear Communion/ Flowergirl dresses.
