At the end of Bethlehem's Best, the entire cast of townspeople, shepherds, angels, and wise men gather in Aaron's father's stable to celebrate the birth of Christ by singing Sing out loud in joy and praise.thank God for this day of days Children will enjoy singing the songs as they become townspeople and market vendors in Bethlehem. Musical styles vary from a Broadway-style opening song, to a contemporary ballad, and a tango for the wise men. Five of the fifteen roles can be portrayed by a child, youth, or adult to give directors more flexibility in casting the musical.
