Coming Up… ‘Babushka’, Our Christmas Production
29th November 2013
On Thursday 5th December at 14:00, the children of Wandsworth Prep will perform their annual Christmas production to parents, family and friends.
This year, the children will perform a charming version of the ‘Babushka’ story, inspired by the book by Sandra Horn. Babushka cleans her little Russian house all day long to stop herself from noticing how lonely and sad she is. She’s so busy brushing away the spider, the mouse and the fly, that she fails to notice beautiful things going on around her: a new star shining in the sky, an angel hovering in her garden and an exciting message being spread by three mysterious kings.
In a dream, an angel sings to Babushka of a baby boy born in a manger. Horrified to think of this baby shivering in a dirty stable, she sets off with a basket full of presents and cleaning materials. On her journey she meets people in need, and by the time she reaches Bethlehem she has learnt a valuable lesson, as well as filling an empty place in her heart.
The children have been working very diligently and with much enthusiasm to rehearse their lines, practise the songs and learn the dances for our annual holiday production.
Parents are invited to join us for some Christmas treats, hosted by the children, following the production.
We hope you enjoy the show!
