- The Way of the Star-

This year the festival is proud to present the dramatic musical titled "The Way of the Star" by Creative Director Ron de Jager:

When several magi discover signs in the heavens that suggest a great king will be born in Israel, they set out to pay their respects to the holy child. Their journey sparks the wrath of reigning King Herod and soon, both the wise men and the holy family are forced to flee for their lives. Unable to find the child, Herod resorts to desperate measures. Afraid, ignorant of what to do, and seemingly cut off from further guidance, Mary and Joseph evade their pursuers, reunite with one of the Magi and finally escape on a ship to Tarsus. Caught in a perilous storm that blows them off course and threatens to sink the ship with all hands, they're finally forced to reconcile the trials of humanity with their wounded faith, and their small hopes for the future. Passing through the storm, they rediscover the promise of their son, and find the will to celebrate his birthday, his future, and their safe arrival in the Magi's Egyptian holdings.
