Noisy Nativity - By Gerry Page and Ruth Kenward
Noisy Nativity - for children who can't keep quiet - is the Christmas story told with gusto! A very simple nativity musical for young children, with plenty for all to do. There are lots of actions to the songs and lots of noise to make with voices and percussion, all of which keeps children very engaged. Great fun, and bound to be a parent-pleaser!
The show opens with children playing percussion and clapping so loudly that their teachers come to quieten them down. ‘Why are you making all that noise?’ they ask. ‘Because Christmas is exciting!’ the children reply.
Connor and Chloe are under the impression that Christmas is all about presents but the teachers point them in the direction of the Nativity - and so begins a lively retelling of the story of Jesus’ birth.
The script is very versatile, suiting almost any size of cast. There are just a handful of main parts, which can easily be shared out to suit larger groups - and if you have nursery age children, the part of the teachers could even be played by adults.
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).
Suitable for ages 3 to 8 years.
Approximate Duration: 20 minutes
