Cheeky Cherubs (An Angelic Mini-Nativity) - By Niki Davies
Niki Davies’ mini-nativity, with a simple but engaging script and four lovely songs, is a charming piece ideally suited to 3-6 year olds.
It is lesson time in heaven and the younger angels have a lot to learn, from polishing their halos to tuning their harps and learning to sing beautifully in a choir.
Suddenly the Chief Angel arrives and gives them something even more important to practise: a message for the shepherds … about the birth of Jesus.
In this delightful mini-nativity comprising four songs and a short, simple script, Niki Davies has fashioned a charming piece of theatre for younger children, introducing them to the events of the birth of Jesus through the eyes of a choir of cheeky little angels who learn to fulfil their important mission in spreading the good news of his arrival.
It may be short, but it packs quite a punch and should provide its young cast with an enjoyable and memorable experience, not to mention making things just a little easier for the teachers and staff!
The play has been written with 33 speaking parts, plus Mary who has a non-speaking part. The cast size is flexible between 20 to 50+ (ideal cast size 33). There is also some group-speaking for the little angels. The narration can be spoken by children, but with a very young group it may be better to have it spoken by an adult.
The Director's Book includes the full script with song lyrics, character list, 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.
An editable version of the script in Word format is available to customers who also purchase a performance licence. The cost of the editable script is currently £6.95 and this can only be bought (along with the performance licence) direct from the publisher’s website or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
