It's the most wonderful time of the year except Ryan, Morgan, Caleb and Isaiah are sick of Christmas…but who wants to say that out loud. Kayla, Michelle and Devin are looking for the next revival but they don't have a car…heck, they don’t have a license yet. The Richardsons are trying to get used to being broke and Samuel just wants have a good time…Did I mention they're all homeless? Jackson is falling for Tara but she absolutely can't stand him. Spencer is madly in love with Jackson but he doesn't even know she exists. Alicia doesn't have a clue. Erin, Brittany and Ashley are under the oppressive rule of their beautiful best friend, Aria and the entire congregation is deathly afraid of their certifiably crazy musician, Sis. Melodies. You should be too. Set in the bitter cold of bankrupt Detroit, BLACK NATIVITY: THE MUSICAL EXPERIENCE has more twists and turns than a falling snowflake but warmly lands in your heart as a new Christmas classic. The cast of nearly 60 young artists break down the fourth wall with amazing choreography, foot stomping music and inspiring acting while portraying the timeless Nativity Story as never before. Come, see the wonder… BLACK NATIVITY: THE MUSICAL EXPERIENCE! Langston Hughes was just the beginning.
