‘We loved 'Little Star's Story'. It has a very clear, sweet message that all children watching and performing could understand. Everything was easy to learn and there was something for everyone to do, even in our cast of 90! The songs were catchy and the roles for the actors were varied. Excellent!’
- KS, KS1 Leader, Cross In Hand, East Sussex.
An adorable nativity musical for KS1 that is simple to prepare, yet it has plenty for the whole cast to do and enjoy. The songs are sweet and very easy to teach and two versions of the script are included - one for age 6 to 9, the other for age 5 to 7 (simplified). A read aloud story is included to help you introduce the content to the children.
One night, all the stars in the sky are very excited because the King of Kings has been born. Little Star says she’s going to do something really big to welcome such an important baby - but all the other stars laugh. ‘You’re too small to do something big!’ they say. ‘Maybe they’re right’, she thinks, but it doesn’t stop her from setting out to find a really special present for the baby.
Little Star goes north, south, west and east, looking for that special gift but finds nothing good enough for the King of Kings. Miserably, she gives up. ‘The other stars were right. I am too small to do anything properly.’ What she didn’t know was that, while she was travelling back and forth to Bethlehem, lots of people had been following her! Compared to the sun and moon, Little Star might shine only a tiny bit of light but she has brought everyone to the stable where Jesus was born!
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).
