Nativity Show City of Perth 2015
21-Dec-2015

Huge success once again for the City of Perth's Christmas Nativity. New multilevel stage design and new lighting concept designed by the APAN production team.

 Held in Forrest Chase, in the centre of the city, it attracts audiences of over 5000 people each evening.

This year the story is narrated lovingly and passionately by Lisa Adam, portraying a woman who lived in the time of Jesus, as she tells the story to her awestruck daughter, gorgeously played by Phoebe Tennant, in a performance reminiscent of a young Angela Cartwright.

Over a hundred performers appear in this gala presentation, as we follow the traditional Christmas story.
