Hooray In A Manger - By Jane Carr and Geoff Lawson
Seven beautiful new songs and a lovely script make Hooray In A Manger the perfect nativity musical for 5-9 year olds.
Godfrey Humps, the world’s first three-humped camel, strides towards Bethlehem in this wonderfully entertaining and joyful nativity. And it’s not just Godfrey who is on the move either: three wise men, an array of travellers, shepherds, angels and even sheep are keen to get in on the action.
Carried along by Godfrey’s sheer exuberance - not to mention by his three humps - everyone heads to the starlit stable, excited to meet the newborn baby Jesus!
A three-humped camel may not be the first character you think of when it comes to the nativity story. Clearly, Godfrey Humps is a work of fiction. But what a wonderful addition he is, serving to carry the Three Wise Men as they make their incredible journey to Bethlehem from the East.
His positive, kind, helpful and excitable disposition - not to mention his propensity for shouting “Hooray” at the top of his voice - enables us to see afresh the wonderful story of the birth of Jesus, born in a barn lit by its very own star.
Complete with angels, shepherds, donkeys and an innkeeper, Hooray In A Manger will delight children and adults alike and remind us all of why we continue to tell this most enduring and enchanting of tales, each and every year.
