The Story

Scene 1 : An office at The Bethlehem Star news papyrus

The Bethlehem Star is desperate for a scoop! The editor encourages his reporters to get out and find a story worth telling - not just a donkey or some figs or some slippery oil thieves

Scene 2 : A scoop missed

If only they knew! 'Babies are born all the time ... nothing special about yours'. What a bungle

Scene 3 : Keep your head down

The Roman soldiers are BIG, STRONG, ROUGH and SCARY ... But at least one has itchy, knitted underpants

Scene 4 : A real scoop

Although the reporter's quill is bent, there's quite a regal story here

Scene 5 : Scooperdooper

The shepherds don't have a story ... apart from ... what's this? Wow, wow and more wow ... Angels! Scooooop!

Scene 6 : Thee best inn in town

No, that's not a typo, it really is THEE best inn in town ... but it's full! Can guess what happens next ...
