It All Happened in the Country:

20th Anniversary Edition

Arrangers: Dennis Allen, Nan Allen

We are delighted to bring you the 20th anniversary edition of this widely-loved children’s musical for Christmas from the remarkable and successful writing team of Dennis and Nan Allen. It All Happened in the Country has been performed in countless churches over the years and become a revered favorite among all ages. Come and relive this timeless musical as you remember the story that never gets old – the birth of Christ.

Daniel and Chelsea, two city slickers, get stranded in the country and find out there is more to Christmas than the hustle and bustle of presents and decorations. With the help of Cora May, cousin Luther, Uncle Yule and Granny, they learn the story of Christ's birth and how it all happened in the country...the countryside of Bethlehem.
