The Christmas image is one of a humble birth surrounded by love. In the Christian tradition, Christ’s birth is celebrated just after the winter solstice, as the light of earth is returning. This humorous and joyful “Oberufer” Christmas story has been played for decades at Waldorf schools throughout the world.

The Shepherd’s Play is one of the trilogy of Medieval plays, which Waldorf education founder Rudolf Steiner recommended to Waldorf schools. This annual gift from the BWS faculty to students, families, and the community is a joyful retelling of the Christmas story through the experience of the shepherds.

Come to the Auditorium (Grades School Building) right after the school or in the evening.

“Come, gather round me, my merry choir, like chestnuts roasting round the fire.”
