Saltmine Theatre Company offers a Christmas film
Apprentice angels looking for a shepherd, a shepherd searching for a lost sheep and a disguised king hunting for a special baby. Confusion reigns, identities are mistaken and loyalties are betrayed. Will things ever get sorted out? ‘Hark! A Nativity Story’ is the Dudley-based Saltmine Theatre Company’s innovative re-telling of the Christmas story, leading to the discovery that everyone is invited to meet the ultimate King at Christmas.
This year, when Christmas preparations and celebrations will look very different than usual, the core message of Christmas remains unchanged. Saltmine Theatre Company has, therefore, reimagined ‘Hark! A Nativity Story’ for the new context. Filmed live in a theatre with a large cast, live band and original music, the Christmas show is now offered to local churches to provide a creative element to their Christmas programme.
Partnering churches will receive a link to the full, filmed production of ‘Hark! A Nativity Story,’ complete with interval. Additional children’s and audience resources will be available to download. Saltmine simply requests that churches distribute the exclusive link to the film only among its own congregation and invited guests.
The Saltmine Theatre Company is asking for a minimum donation of £650 for the ‘Hark! A Nativity Story’ package. The show will be made accessible to participating churches online throughout the pre-Christmas and Christmas season.
