‘A wonderfully simple score with lyrics and melodies that enable each child to grasp and understand the meaning of what they are singing. The tunes are catchy and the words are powerful. Excellent, no matter how large or small your chorus is.’
- DP, Sunday School Teacher, East Sussex.
This has to be one of the easiest nativity musicals to produce - and one of the most adorable! Even the costuming is easy, as nearly everyone can simply wear their pyjamas! The perfect answer for those wanting to re-tell the Nativity story in a direct and simple way that even the youngest may understand.
It's Christmas Eve and none of the children want to go to bed! 'Can we have a story?' they ask Mum and Dad (who – if it's a large cast – have a LOT of children!). 'Please tell us a story!' they beg.
What follows is a simple telling of the Nativity story through songs (which have plenty of actions). The Nativity is acted out during the songs, after each of which the children ask 'What happened next?'. Mum and Dad take the story forward into the next song and so it goes on, until it really is time for bed! Age guide 3-6 years. 8 short songs (+ 1 optional extra) with actions.
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).
