It's Chr-i-i-i-stmas! - By Andrew Oxspring and Ian Faraday
This 'pop-tastic' musical will make you feel like you're at the coolest Christmas party ever! Set against the background of a festive chart show, the traditional Nativity is told by a delightful variety of 'bands' and 'artists', all key characters in the familiar story. Through wonderful pastiches and parodies of our favourite seasonal rock and pop anthems, and a simple but witty script, the first ever Christmas is presented like never before and is guaranteed to get your whole school rocking as we count down the hits to see who is top of the festive pop charts!
There’s a bit of Motown round the manger with ‘Gabriel’s Soul Patrol’, while glam-rock shepherds, ‘The Crooks’, bring the beat to Bethlehem in their platform heels. Also contenders for the top spot are boyband trio ‘The Wise Guys’, bickering folk-punks ‘The Landlords’, 60’s pop icons ‘Don Kee & The Animals’ and the brassy ‘Herod & The King’s Swingers’! A poptastic Christmas nativity musical production for the whole school to enjoy!
Contains 47 speaking roles with a flexible number of ensemble characters. For larger schools, extra speaking characters can easily be added to scenes and the existing lines shared out between them. Equally, for smaller schools, because many characters only appear in one scene, multiple parts can be played by a single actors. Suitable for ages 6 to 11.
The Book and CD Pack contains everything you need to stage a successful show including the full script with detailed stage directions, character information, tips and suggestions for costumes, props and scenery; a CD of vocal tracks, backing tracks, continuity music and sound effects; and a piano score with voice line and guitar chords. The CD-ROM Digital Pack version replaces the wire-bound A4 book and includes the script in both PDF and MS Word files on the CD-ROM, allowing you to re-write or individualise the text, dialogue and lyrics to suit your needs; and to print as many scripts as you require from your PC (the CD-ROM pack also includes the score as a PDF file and an audio CD of music as with the Book and CD version, along with detailed stage directions, character information, tips and suggestions for costumes, props and scenery).
