Honky Tonky Donkey - By Niki Davies
From the brilliant Niki Davies comes Honky Tonky Donkey, a charming nativity perfectly pitched for 4-8 year olds. With seven toe-tapping songs and a simple and adaptable script, this delightful new nativity will captivate young performers and offers plenty of scope both for smaller and larger casts.
Songwriter and one man bander, Honky Tonky Donkey, can’t find inspiration for his next song. When he discovers that everyone is leaving Nazareth to go to Bethlehem for a census, he decides to go too. Maybe he will find his inspiration there? Then who should hitch a ride but a very special couple called Mary and Joseph. When they get to Bethlehem and a baby is born, things suddenly become obvious to Honky Tonky Donkey. As the world celebrates the birth of a wonderful child, a new song is written. And of course, it is all about the baby Jesus.
Contains 29 speaking roles with a flexible cast size of between 17 to 50+ (ideal cast size 35).
The Director's Book includes the full script with song lyrics, character list, scene breakdowns, characters in each scene, song notes and staging suggestions plus other useful production information, along with the sheet music piano score with vocal line and guitar chords. The accompanying CD includes all songs recorded with children’s voices and full backing tracks.
