‘A very enjoyable musical item that conveys the true meaning of Christmas. Lots of parts, great songs, and most of all the children love performing it!’
- ML, UK.
Its Christmas Eve! Two small children ask their wise Grandfather what Christmas is all about. He gives them a magical box which, with the help of its Keepers, takes the children on an amazing adventure.
Through the places they visit and the people they meet, they learn about the meaning of Christmas. On the way they collect jigsaw pieces which help to make up the Christmas picture. The final, central piece is found in Bethlehem and the children return home knowing the true meaning of Christmas.
Seven wonderful, catchy songs bring this exciting tale to life and superb backing tracks are available with and without vocals on the CDs available separately.
A magical yet simple and flexible production with parts for between 30 and 138 children aged 5 to 11 (combined KS1 and KS2 production).
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.
