December 2 and 9 – The Star of Bethlehem

Join us on the evenings of December 2nd or 9th to
hear our Special Presentation of The Star of Won-
der. On these 2 nights VBAS actors tell the Christ-
mas Story told from the perspective of the Three
Wisemen. The journey the Wisemen took on that
first Christmas comes to life as they detail their
quest to find the Christ Child and answer a very ba-
sic question: what could cause that star to shine so
brightly? Children 12 and under will receive a “goo-
die bag” of toys and candy. Be sure to arrive early
as this particular show sells out early.

Presented by Don Reed and Tom Burleson

December 16 – The Star of Bethlehem

What was the star that the Magi saw ? Join VBAS
educator Beth Bero for this family-friendly program
that explores the history, science and wonder of a
special night.

Presented by Beth Bero

December 23 and 30 – Standing Stones and Sungazers

In recognition of the Winter Solstice we will explore how we believe ancient civilizations marked the passage of the year through monuments, monoliths and markers and learn about the astronomical causes of all the motions.

Presented by Alex Hall
