Roles, practice for Winterport Nativity

Nov 10, 2017

Winterport — Kids of all ages are welcome to attend the Winterport Nativity role assignment and practice Sunday, Nov. 19, at 2:45 p.m. at St. Gabriel's Catholic Church, 443 South Main St./Route 1.

Parents of children who cannot attend but would like a part should contact Lynda and Dean El-Hajj at 223-5031 or

For the 50th year, members of the Winterport community, along with six local churches, will come together to bring this outdoor play to life. It is presented on the grounds of the historic Union Meeting House, at night, the weekend before Christmas. The streetlights are turned off and the Route 1A traffic is diverted.

The children of Winterport and surrounding communities are the actors; the only speaking part is the Narrator, an adult. The play is 12 minutes long and involves live animals.

This year's pageant dates are Friday and Saturday, Dec. 15 and 16.
