Story-Line: This is the story of the shepherds in Bethlehem who found themselves on a hillside sung to by angels. When the bright lights faded, what did they do next?
You'll meet Jesse, the young shepherd, sent from Jerusalem by his angry father, who hopes he will learn to become a man. There's Zedekiah, the head shepherd, who knows the stories of the prophets of old say a Messiah is coming. Is it just a story? Zedekiah doesn't think so! And of course there's Amos and Josiah and Jotham, three shepherds stumbling off to Bethlehem without any real directions to find a baby.

Celebrating their 10th Anniversary in 2018, The Painted Fish Performing Arts Society was created by Marian Hamilton and Ivan Baharally in 2008 as a private production company. The mandate of the company was to present theatre that reflected Christian values. The first show, Jesus Christ Superstar was a resounding success and was the catalyst for continuing. The next play, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat achieved critical acclaim from sold out audiences and was nominated for 6 CAT awards.
The decision was made in 2012 to become a Society and expand. The Painted Fish Performing Arts Society has become a family theatre company with a mandate to encourage intergenerational casts of all faiths. Our youngest performers, aged 6 years and our oldest performers often in their 70’s enjoyed working together on such shows as The Sound of Music, Oliver! and many Christmas productions. The Society also encourages new works, recently presenting The Happy Prince (Nina Achenbach, Daphne and Tony Matthews) and The Son, a musical by T Marian Hamilton Tony Matthews, and Daphne Matthews .
