Academy Christmas Program (Jrk-5th) 2023:

“The Mystery of the Manger”


The heart of the message of this musical is demonstrating the overwhelming PROOF that Jesus is exactly who He said He was! 



  • Auditions will be held THURSDAY, OCTOBER 12, from 3-4pm.
  • All students in grades 2-5 are welcome to audition (but it is NOT mandatory) 
  • Audition packets will be sent home with interested students this week. We always have a great turnout, so I highly recommend students practice at home!
  • Lines do not need to be memorized, but the more familiar the students are with the lines, the stronger their audition will be!
  • All students who are given a primarily role will need to be available one or two days a week after school for rehearsals beginning in late October. The rehearsal schedule will be determined once casting is complete, as I try to work around other commitments of cast members as much as possible.


FOR PARENTS: If any of you have a passion for the arts, I’d love for you to begin thinking about being part of my behind-the-scenes team. I am always looking for help with costuming, set design, props, and dance/choreography. Email Music and Theater Instructor, Melissa Steventon (melissa.steventon@abidingacademy.org), to inquire.
