Nativity Play in the Auferstehungskirche

“We’re going to rehearse, and everyone else is going to be quiet” Jutta Haßelwander told the children, who had come to the Auferstehungskirche on Saturday to rehearse for the annual nativity play.

At the dress rehearsel each child not only had their part, but also their own assigned place to sit.  That way, Frau Haßelwander knew exactly where the person was who she needed to go onto the stage.

She has been organising the nativity play in the Auferstehungskirche for the past 14 years, and each year she tries to interpret the Christmas story in a new year.  However this year the story is being told in a more traditional year, and preparations began back in September, with the children being cast mid-November.
