Oberufer Shepherds’ Play

The VWS is proud to present our annual rendition of

Oberufer Shepherds’ Play

Thursday, December 21, 7:00 pm

Come one, come all!

Each year, on the last day of school before the winter break, the faculty, staff, and members of our community come together to perform The Shepherds’ Play, as a gift to the students and parents. Performing this reverential and humorous medieval nativity play is a tradition observed in most Waldorf Schools throughout the world.

From Heaven above to you I bring A blessed word of good tiding.
Yea, News of joy and mirth this day To all mankind I sing and say.

~ The Angel from The Oberufer Shepherds’ Play
