‘Perfect for infants, catchy tunes with a great backing track and suggested actions capture the imagination. An effective re-telling of the Nativity story. We have really enjoyed doing this and heartily recommend it.’
- Teacher, Nottingham.
One of the UK's favourite nativities, A Wriggly Nativity is designed for children who just can't sit still and tells the Christmas story almost entirely through catchy songs, actions, movement and dance!
Every angel, sheep, shepherd and lamb will be using all their excited energy to wriggle their way through this little musical. Irresistible!
Everything about this sparkling production is easy to learn. There is very little dialogue and the narration between songs is brief, making the show ideal for children of ages 3-7 years. The songs feature actions for the whole choir, so every child is specifically required NOT to sit still while singing!
The Director's Pack contains everything you need to stage a successful show including the Director's Book with director's overview, cast list, synopsis, notes, script, score, lyrics, helpful staging suggestions and performance licence application form. The included Enhanced CD contains full vocal demonstrations of the songs for the children to learn and separate instrumental backing tracks for performance use (no pianist required), along with printable files of the pupil script and lyric sheets (which allows you to print off as many copies as you require).
Also available to download from the iTunes app store is the excellent ‘Wriggly Nativity Interactive App’ which features children telling and acting the ‘A Wriggly Nativity’ story, excerpts from all of the Wriggly songs to sing along to, cute illustrations and many fun activities and great games to enjoy, including a ‘match the pairs’ game and a Nativity quiz to test your memory. You receive certificates when you read the story and finish the games, to which you can add your own photo, save it and then e-mail it to friends and family! Available for iPad and iPhone. Brilliantly designed for young readers and very easy to use, even for pre-schoolers.
