Norfolk high school version of Christmas story

DownhamStarAngus MacQueen

2010: A new musical version of the Christmas story, set in a modern high school, will be performed by youngsters at a West Norfolk church this weekend.
On Saturday December 11, the talented young people of Downham Market Christian Fellowship will be performing “Star”, a musical version of the Christmas story.
The musical it is set in a high school and puts the events of the first Christmas into a modern context.  The characters, for instance, have been replaced by modern counterparts – an example being that homeless people are included instead of the shepherds.  It is described as a new way to rediscover the miracle of Jesus’ birth.
All of the music is original, but is in the style of the popular “High School Musical” films.
Performances will take place at 2.30pm and 7.30pm, at the Sovereign Centre, the home of the Christian Fellowship, which is on Sovereign Way, on Downham’s Trafalgar Industrial Estate. 
Tickets, which cost £3 (£1.50 for concessions), will be available on the door, or can be bought in advance by telephoning the Sovereign Centre on (01366) 384474, or emailing   All profits will be donated to the NSPCC.
