Unity presents a rockin' Christmas program Dec. 18

Returning by popular demand, Twin Engine retakes the Unity Spiritual Center stage for their annual “The Night in Bethlehem” performance. If you witnessed the performance last year, no doubt you'll want to see it again. This year's performance will be held Sunday, Dec. 18, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults; $10 for children; and $10 each for four or more tickets.

“The Night in Bethlehem,” a delightful tale for the young and young at heart, takes place after the birth of Jesus, as a young boy named Samuel anxiously awaits his time to talk with Joseph. He’s waited all day for Joseph to explain how this came to be, from the Angels to the Kings and how they all arrived in Bethlehem. But Samuel, a seven-year-old boy, is also excited to play his drum for the new baby Jesus.

This narrated story is set to an original score, written and arranged by Kent and Christopher Dockus from Twin Engine. This year's show includes additional music, a new original and guest vocalist Nick Batton and bassist Max Duffy from the band Chil.

The show opens with an electrifying version of "O Holy Night" then onto a newly arranged rockin’ version of "Mary Did You Know?" We're also proud to welcome the return of Karl Bunkelman as our guest narrator.

The music of “The Night in Bethlehem” was inspired by the sounds of Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Tracy Silverman and other alternative rock/orchestra performers. The narrated story was inspired by a simple love for Christmas and its meaning. The Dec. 18 show of “The Night in Bethlehem” concludes with more rockin’ nonsecular Christmas music from Twin Engine. The night promises to leave all in attendance filled with Christmas spirit.

Tickets may be purchased online at www.unitiyspiritualcenter.com/bethlehem.html or in person at Unity Spiritual Center, 23855 Detroit Rd., Westlake, including the night of the event. Refreshments will be available.
