Christian theatre opportunity for Norfolk churches 

Saltmine Theatre Company has announced a new creative seasonal missional package for churches this Christmas.

Rachael Orrell, Chief Executive Officer, of the Christian company, said: “This year whilst everything we love and expect might look different the Christian message of Christmas remains unchanged. Now, more than ever, the message of inclusivity at the heart of the Nativity story is an urgent one. 
“Saltmine Theatre Company feels called to reimagine our show Hark! A Nativity Story an innovative take on the Christmas story including … for this new season. Hark will be filmed live in a theatre with a big cast, live band and original festive music. It is expected to last about an hour and a half plus an interval and will include new songs and dance routines and provide comic and heart-warming entertainment for all ages.   
“We believe this is an opportunity to provide churches with an exciting creative element that cannot be cancelled and which brings joy whilst sharing the familiar Saltmine Christmas heart with added ‘wow’ factor,” said Rachael. 
Private access to online streaming of a full filmed performance of Hark! A Nativity Story will be given to each church who donates to Saltmine. Additional children’s and audience resources will be available for download online.  
How each church delivers this production to their congregation is up to them. Churches could host socially distanced screenings of the show in their building, provide an exclusive link for their church members to watch at home or do a mixture of the two.  
Each church is asked to give a minimum donation of £650 (or up to £850 +) for the Hark Christmas Package or a minimum donation of £250 for the Community Package.
