Bethlehem B and B - By Nick Haworth and Andrew Oxspring
Bethlehem B&B is a nativity musical for the whole school (ages 4-11). Bethlehemís smallest inn, The Happy Donkey, has been receiving some pretty horrible reviews in the local B&B guide! It appears that a rival innkeeper is employing some underhand tactics to boost the ratings and profits of his own establishment, Caesarís Palace Guesthouse.
However, one magical, starry night, The Happy Donkey is THE place to be in town, as a stream of important visitors helps turn the tables, really putting this little inn (and its stable) on the map!
Book and CD Pack includes full script with staging tips, a CD of vocal tracks, backing tracks, continuity music and sound effects and a piano score with voice line and guitar chords (also included is a shorter, simplified script for younger and smaller casts). The CD-ROM pack version replaces the wire-bound A4 book and includes the script and score 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 an audio CD of music as with the Book and CD version).
Also available is a CD-ROM of Digital Backdrops containing five images in the sequence they are required throughout the script, supplied in both a PowerPoint presentation and as individual JPG files. No more scenery painting! These images may be projected onto a screen or wall at the back of your stage or hand them to a local printer to print onto large boards or sheets in order to create your stage backdrops. They're also useful to print off for cast and stage crew to familiarise themselves with the sets and scene changes.
