‘This Nativity has got the lot; great songs, great humour and a VERY simple set.’  - DW, Blakenhale Junior School, Birmingham.

Product Description

The story of David, a shepherd boy, who desperately wants to see the baby Jesus. Eventually, his wish is granted, after many incidents and distractions including meeting the Three Kings and the Three Wise Men!

This lively script views the nativity story from a childs angle and has many humorous moments - Doris the dancing camel and four rebellious sheep among them. Even the Wise Men would be pushed to make the top stream!

There are 50 solo parts for ages 7 to 12, which can easily be reduced if necessary, as well as a choir. Starting and finishing with a carol, there are some half dozen catchy original songs during the action.

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.

Click here for more details about the new "Sing it!" CD-ROM (well worth watching).

Also available is a CD-ROM of Backdrops, which contains instant scenery with digital backdrops 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. The CD-ROM of Backdrops contains a different backdrop for every scene change.

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.
