"Dear Lord Baby Jesus..."

We got a call this week from the woman who is now the director of Trinity Church's annual Christmas pageant. Thinking I was a little too old to reprise one of the many roles I played as a child (seriously, I covered almost everything...Joseph, Herrod, shepherd, townsperson, narrator, all three wisemen...I had chops!) I instinctively knew that something different was up. Would young Emily be interested and/or available to play Baby Jesus in this year's pageant? Well, we spent a few days trying to get a hold of her agent, her manager and three of her "handlers" with no luck. So we just said, darn it all to heck, she can do it!
Sunday, December 21st Emily makes her stage debut as Jesus. As far as acting jobs go, I gotta believe it's all downhill after this.

Does this mean you'll be playing adult Jesus?
