Two pianos and two oboes accompany this musical gift to the community of Salem. The church will be transformed into a theater with lighting and special costumes. Mikaela Starr plays the part of Amahl and Brook Brooks plays the part of the mother. David Nelson, Barry Nelson and Sean Brooks take on the role of the three kings with Ray Phipps playing the part of the page. Written in 1951, “Amahl and the Night Visitors” was the first operetta to be broadcast live on television.
