Meet Aaron, a poor and earnest shepherd who loves his job…but he has one problem: He can’t stay awake while counting his sheep! Enter I.B. Eweing, President/CEO of Wee R Sheep who tells Aaron if he doesn’t stop dozing off and the sheep running away, he’s going to be fired. However, when a miracle happens in Bethlehem one night, Aaron is inspired to follow his dreams and a happy ending is in store for all. It’s easily prepared and presented with as few as 8 children.
