This charming musical combines an old Christmas folk story with new music that reminds us of the true meaning of giving. The musical tells the story of a church that had the most amazing chime of bells in its great ivory tower. According to a legend, on Christmas Eve, all the townspeople would bring gifts for the Christ Child. When a very special gift had been given, the chimes would ring sending forth the sweetest sound anyone had ever heard. Unfortunately, the bells had been silent for many years. Things began to change, however, when a young girl named Sara and her little brother journey to the church hoping to hear the chimes ring. Appropriate for children's choirs plus the addition of youth and/or adult if desired. Numerous non-singing roles also allow for maximum participation.
