Using both familiar carols and fun, new songs, Out Standing in Their Field tells the Christmas story with a ragtag group of shepherds and a colorful company of angels. This 20-minute musical is easily prepared and presented, and flows with clever dialogue while ending with a powerful message. Meet Clarence, the concerned angel, Gabriel, the "cool" trumpet-playing angel, Oscar, the grouchy shepherd, Missy, the exuberant shepherd-in-training, and more as they find their way to the manger . . . while learning that with the birth of Jesus, everyone is truly outstanding!
