"THE PROMISE" IN BRANSON
As well as "The Promise," Disa starred as baby Jesus in "Two from Galilee" at the same theatre, a musical drama about the love story of Mary and Joseph.
Disa was actually employed, registered with Social Security, and received paychecks; and as her parents, we were allowed backstage to watch our baby being wrapped in swaddling clothes, and afterwards we'd make our way through a side curtain and into the huge auditorium to watch the show for free. Once I even needed to walk under the live camel standing in front of the curtain. Also our whole family was invited to and attended the end-of-season "Promise" cast party, eating and celebrating with wonderful actors and actresses, many of whom came up to compliment our baby and visit with us. We even won door prizes.
It was so fun watching the birth of Jesus being presented on stage in such an awesome musical performance, and at the end of the scene Joseph took the baby from Mary and held our youngest daughter high to present her to God the Father. So it was a double impact for us.
Disa was so well behaved throughout that the cast was amazed. If she did happen to cry, which was very rare, the microphones were set up to drown it out with the stage performance. Only one time did she blow it, when Mary handed her to Joseph and he began to lift her up, Disa vomited...and Mary jumped back...and the audience roared with laughter.
