Formby Village Nativity Play
2016 Photos with thanks to
THE annual Churches Together, in
Formby, Altcar and Hightown (CTFAH) on Saturday, 10 December 2016, performed the
local Village Nativity Play, which was called:- "Night of Miracles."
This open air
event took over a large section of Formby Village and drew a large crowd. The
event had children from local primary schools, dressed in costumes, singing
Christmas Carols at the opening. Then the main performance took place after a
quick introduction by John Nelson, Chairman of CTFAH. This year had 34 main cast
members and a host of others, which included live animals and even a stunning
bird of prey! This year's show was written by Bruni Jones and directed by both
David Davies and Alban O'Brien. Choreography was provided by Vicci Harrocks,
from Formby High Dance Department and the audio by Andy Johnson.
The show is a lose interpretation of the Nativity, which changes
slightly each year and based on a theme. This year the theme was
"Miracles" and the play tried to emphasise the miracle of Jesses' birth.
"Thank you for sharing our rendition of the Christmas
story. We would like to thank everyone who came and supported this event, but
special thanks must go to Formby Parish Council, Waitrose, The Kitchen Cafe, Dow
High, Vanilla Gift and Card Shop, plus David Rimmer... And the biggest thanks
must go to all the school children, actors, scene and costume makers and
stewards, who without, this show would not have been possible." said a
spokesperson for CTFAH.
In an age of high technology and
graphics of increasing complexity, it was heartening to see how a traditional
adaptation using everyday materials was, when combined with an enthusiastic and
committed cast, able to convey a powerfully convincing message to those who
will be made of the event that will be able to be obtained via CTFAH very soon.
