A Christmas Eve blizzard in western Kansas strands travelers at the Bethlehem Motel. The Motel proprietors, Jack and Rachael, struggle to meet the needs of the unexpected crowd, while coping with the coming holiday, which holds painful memories for them. The blizzard strands four members of the Topeka Stargazers Club in search of a special star, four cowboys caught tending their herd, and a busload of not-so-angelic kids from the Oak City Church Children’s Choir. Just as the guests pitch in to help Jack and Rachel make do with the limited rooms and provisions Joe and Mary arrive, and Mary is very pregnant. The children panic about missing Christmas, the Stargazers grouse about missing a unique astronomical event because of the storm, one of the cowboys falls for the children’s choir director, and Jack and Rachel find themselves finding room for the expectant mother. Just when all seems under control, Mary goes into labor. Bethlehem, Kansas is the musical story of people who find love and peace in the miracle that is Christmas.
