Join Ashley Hall for one of its most sacred traditions, the Christmas Play. First presented in 1924 under the direction of school founder, Mary Vardrine McBee, the Christmas Play is an ancient retelling of the Nativity Cycle of the medieval Mystery Plays of Chester, England. Students of all ages —100 in total—are represented in the performance portraying the roles of young angels, dancing jesters, shepherds, the Holy Family and even Magi complete with beards. The Red Choir provides musical interludes throughout the performance.
