|Amahl and the Night Visitors|
Place: Near Bethlehem
Time: The first century, just after the birth of Christ
Although he has a kind and pleasant heart, Amahl, a disabled boy, can walk only with the aid of a crutch and he has a problem with telling tall tales - and, occasionally, lies. He is sitting outside playing his shepherd's pipe when his mother calls for him. After much persuasion, he enters the house but his mother does not believe him when he tells her that there is an amazing star "as big as a window" outside, over their roof.
Later that night, Amahl's mother weeps for her son, praying that he not become a beggar. After bedtime, there is a knock at the door and his mother tells him to go see who it is. He is amazed when he sees three splendidly dressed kings. They tell the mother and Amahl that they are on a long journey to give gifts to a wondrous child, and that they would like to rest at Amahl's house, to which the mother agrees. Amahl's mother goes to fetch firewood and Amahl seizes the opportunity to speak with the Magi. The mother returns. Amahl is told to go fetch all the surrounding neighbors, so that the kings may be fed and entertained
After the neighbors have left, and the Kings are resting, the mother, being poor and also sickened at the thought of her child being a beggar, attempts to steal some gold that was meant for the Christ child, but is thwarted by the Kings' page. When Amahl wakes to find utter confusion being set upon his house, he attacks the page, in an attempt to save his mother. Upon seeing Amahl's weak defense for his mother, and realizing the mother's motives for the attempted theft, King Melchior says she may keep the gold, as the Holy Child will not need earthly power or wealth to build his kingdom.
The mother says that knowing of the Child's greatness, she wishes to send a gift but has nothing to send. Amahl, too, has nothing to give the Christ Child except his crutch, but he offers it. Immediately upon saying this, his leg is miraculously healed, and he joyfully leaves his mother at the cottage and goes off with the Magi to see the child and give his crutch in thanks for being healed.

We’re thrilled to be screening the first ever live cinema broadcast from the stage of the Royal Shakespeare Company. We kick-start an exciting new season of three RSC plays with the sellout production of Richard II (the fastest selling show in the RSC’s history), with David Tennant in the title role and directed by RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran.
Richard is King, ordained by God to lead his people. But he is also a man of very human weakness. A man whose vanity threatens to divide the great houses of England and drag his people into a dynastic civil war that will last 100 years.
Members, Students & Advanced Sales: $12.00
Day of show: $15.00
|Sugar Valley Singers|
The concert will be held at Historic Midwest Theater on Dec. 14th, at 7:30pm, doors open at 6:45pm.
The Sugar Valley Singers are back in action! After an 18-month period of inactivity, our men’s barbershop harmony chorus is returning to the Midwest Theater. Yes, the Scottsbluff Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society (formerly called the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barbershop Singing in America) will be presenting Christmas carols and popular songs of the Holiday Season.
The Sugar Valley Singers men’s chorus was formed in 1975, and has sung up and down the North Platte Valley ever since. Men from eastern Wyoming and the western Nebraska Panhandle have entertained audiences at Christmas time, for patriotic events, on Valentine’s Day, and at numerous nursing homes and retirement facilities. The chorus has been on a bit of a vacation for the past year or so, but are now back in action.
About half the men in the chorus are Wyoming residents, and the other half are from the Scottsbluff area. Dr. Dan Clark, the chorus director, will be leading the music again, after a brief absence, and the men of the chorus have been working hard to get their musical skills back on track.
Come celebrate the Christmas season with us at the Historic Midwest Theater. Tickets will be available at the door, and may be purchased in advance at The Midwest Theater, Barbour Music, in Scottsbluff, or any Sugar Valley Singer.
Sugar Valley Singers is a men’s barbershop group comprised of members from Scottsbluff, Gering, Mitchell, Morrill & the Torrington Wyo areas.
Tickets are on sale now at the Midwest Theater & from any member of the Sugar Valley Singers.
Tickets: Adults $7.00
18 & under FREE
