Cobram Uniting Church patrons found their festive spirit on Friday, enjoying a Christmas play and carols.
Irvine Hall was the perfect venue for the first time event between the church and enthusiastic cast members.
The beautiful narrative was adapted to incorporate the message of Christmas in a different format.
A narrator told the crowd the story of a lonely widowed wood carver in the Australian alps, who meets a widow and her 10-year-old son.
The widow and her son help him experience a miracle at Christmas.
The audience joined in with well-chosen Christmas carols during the performance, accompanied by Val Lee.
The set and painted fire place transported the audience back to the 1880s.
The cast, who had been rehearsing for the past few months, were ideally matched to their characters and their performances were very well received by those attending, with some hidden Cobram talent revealed.
Part of the proceeds will be donated to the Cobram youth cinema project.
