I read this and laughed my head off. It is really cute! The kids love it and want to do it. Angels with cell phones and the shepherds acting like cowboys is funny! It does get the message across and in a funny and unusual way. I am not sure about the two - two-hour practices.....unless you have very well behaved kids that listen to exactly what you want done and do it right the first time! But we have been working on it for 45 minutes for the last 4 weeks and kids are doing ok.....songs are a little bit harder. Wish they were lower voices, but they are ok. As for props, it is fantastic! Hardly any needed! All sound effects are right on the CD! It is great! Two thumbs up, and more if I have them!
