‘This proved ideal for our small Primary School - an easy set for a small stage!’
- DS, Teacher. Product Description
Another light-hearted, feel-good Musical nativity from the same stable (no pun intended!) as The Little Shepherd.
Once again we have a dancing Doris - this time its Doris the Donkey. The Good are a band of Angels out to thwart the Bad, a group of Devils bent on wrecking the Nativity. Some industrial espionage in the Devil's ranks make sure that the Angels win through. There will be no problem in fitting in as many children as you want into the cast - in fact, if you have less than 30 available you may be struggling.
This highly original and entertaining treatment, which children will love to perform and staff to produce, is both funny and moving and is backed by a score as tuneful as its predecessor.
A BRAND NEW product called "Sing it!" is available for this musical. This CD-ROM can teach the songs to the children without any teacher input. Children can use it at school or at home (think of the time it will save you!). Most schools use it in class on an interactive white board or in the school hall on the overhead projector to allow full cast practice. This latest version allows Lyrics on or off, Vocals on or off and the facility to practise one line at a time - all features are accessible instantly with one click. Children LOVE learning this way and the product is foolproof.

Another new product is
AudioScript, an "Audio Book" style read-through of the entire show performed by professional voice actors. The AudioScript is supplied on a CD and teaches each child their lines, when to perform them and most importantly, HOW to perform them. The copy and repeat method is simply the best and quickest way to learn. You can listen to a sample of the AudioScript product in the "Contents/Songlist" section below.
