‘Our Juniors loved this modern take on the Nativity story; for the first time ever, the boys actually wanted to sing the songs.’
- EW, Year Two Teacher, South London Primary School.
The Nativity story updated! Mary and Joseph travel to Bethlehem but encounter mishaps along the way. When their old Skoda breaks down and they discover that their hotel has been double booked, they are forced to stay in a kindly Zoo Keeper’s office next to his stable where Mary gives birth to baby Jesus.
Meanwhile, a group of ‘not so wise’ Stargazers set out to see the baby king in their Transit van with gifts from Argos. Herod calls on his bumbling Royal Action Team to find the baby King and Angel Gabriel delivers a special message to a group of Shepherds while they wash their socks at night!
A modern take on a 2000 year old story, complete with Gabriel the ‘Rapping Archangel’, incompetent government ministers and mobile phones. Contains 32 speaking roles and any number of chorus parts. Catchy, memorable, toe tapping songs and easily contructed props. Separate CDs of vocal and backing tracks and Piano Score also available. Extensive production notes are included in the script. A great alternative Nativity with terrific humour that parents, pupils and teachers will love!
