PLANT CITY A Christmas musical blending contemporary with traditional will be performed 11 a.m. Sunday at Springhead Baptist Church.
Music director and Youth Pastor Marty McIntosh said that the musical features traditional Christmas songs that are structured around the play “Good News Flash,” which is about the night of the birth of Christ.
McIntosh explained that while the play is scripted the music is an original arrangement set to a soundtrack.
“The music is an original arrangement of old Christmas songs,” he said. “I found the play and we just put music around it.”
McIntosh has served at the church for three years.
The musical will be performed in the church sanctuary, 3106 S. Wiggins Road, during the Sunday morning worship service. A luncheon of chili and soup will be served in the fellowship hall immediately following the performance.
The music will be performed by the adult choir while members of the youth group will do the acting parts. McIntosh said they wanted to put a new spin on songs traditionally sung from a hymn book but retain the lyrics that made them old favorites.
