This lively musical takes the audience back in time 2,000 years with the help of HIS KIDS choir and storyteller, Sasha Drummond.

In the story, a very angry King Herod has hired a private investigator, Sherlock Watson, played by Bella Sigler, to find out why those three wisemen never returned with the news of where the baby king is.

Sherlock goes to the Bethlehem Public Library, where he enlists the help of the feisty librarian, played by Keilah Sander, to do some background research about the baby Jesus. Could he really be a king?

A Google search turns up clues from the shepherds, angels and wisemen that help Sherlock unravel the mystery. But it isn’t until he hears directly from innkeeper, Isaiah Schaffer, and innkeeper’s wife, Rylee Nordby, that Sherlock discovers Jesus is indeed the king of kings and lord of lords.

He realizes that he is in over his head and must decide whether to return to King Herod with this news, or to follow Jesus.
