Sadie was a wisewoman/girl/lady. T.S. was a shepherd. (Yes, his robe has Lightning McQueen on it--he's very fashion forward as far as shepherds go.)
Some shepherds had whips and sorting sticks (we are in the panhandle--the beef capital of the world). Some cast members chose not to wear footwear. I think they thought that was keeping it true to the times. Our program had no fancy set or costumes. But it had the most important thing a Christmas program should have--the story of the birth of Jesus.
Santa even made a visit--both kids are still committed to joining forces and asking for a Wii together.
