The Littlest Angel Revisited
By Anne McKay Garris
For their children's Christmas program, this year, the Chapel-By-The-Sea created a little bit of heaven, out of pristine white sheets and large cotton clouds, to house the entire Sunday School in a charming presentation of the popular Christmas story, The Littlest Angel.
Victoria Wells, the narrator, told the story to an attentive group of little angels, decked out in charming white t-shirts adorned with golden wings stenciled on the back.
Marisa Corbitt played the title roll, effectively sporting a baseball hat beneath her halo as she presented her woe-begone self at the gates of heaven.
Mary and Joseph were played by Annie Muller and David Christie. Stephan Bingham was assigned the task of playing God. As the story unfurled, the audience was presented with an awesome representation of the "heavenly hosts," some of them a bit wiggly, but all of them charming.
For the performance, the generous number of sheets for the setting was provided by the staff at the Sand Pearl Hotel, and the t-sheets with wings that graced the cherubs were provided by Dan Walker. The list of adults helping with the program was as long as the list of children participating.
After the performance, the children collected new socks and toys from the congregation to supply Christmas baskets to be donated to charitable organizations that attempt to make sure no family in our community is lacking at Christmastime.
