On Friday 6th December 2013 this vibrant musical, first seen on stage in 1971, made a hugely exciting revival at St Christopher’s Cathedral, Bahrain as the central part of an Advent Family Service.

The cast of children, teenagers and a few adults were dressed in 70’s gear, wearing tie-dyed T-shirts which they had designed themselves in a workshop. The musical, based on themes from St Matthew’s Gospel, began with the Advent theme Prepare the Way of the Lord. The idea for this revival came from Graham and Cathy Roberts who, with Jill Laping on piano, had worked hard with the cast from the Friday Club to prepare this memorable production.
