This Way To Bethlehem - By Sarah Cant and Mark Dickman
With an easy script and songs that almost teach themselves, This Way To Bethlehem will definitely be one to remember. A very simple telling of the Nativity story that is great fun for children to perform - and features a Superstar Camel - always the hit song of this show with children and parents alike!
The performance opens with a song that sets up the theme of travelling at Christmas. Our own journeys by car, train and plane, and the journeying of Santa Claus on his sleigh, are set alongside the travels of Mary and Joseph, shepherds, angels, wise men and camels as they make their way to Bethlehem.
All the Nativity characters need some help on their journeys but once everyone is at the stable, they all celebrate the birth of baby Jesus.
