‘This play captured the interest of the children immediately. I love the simplicity and the humour of the play. The music is great. It's lively, and to have the backing tracks makes the music sound professional.’
- SM, Choir Director, Buckingham, Quebec, Canada.
A very entertaining nativity musical, Jesus' Christmas Party is based on million-selling storybook by Nicholas Allan, and it has huge child-appeal. The show is lively, funny and very easy to direct, with songs that almost teach themselves! Two versions of the script are included - one for ages 5 to 7, the other for ages 7 to 10.
The innkeeper and his wife settle down to sleep after a hectic day but a stream of visitors keep showing up, asking for Mary and Joseph. 'Round the back!' the innkeeper shouts, grumpily!
Eventually, desperate for sleep, he flies into a rage and goes to see what all the fuss is about: it sounds like some kind of party out in the stable! But as soon as he sees newborn baby Jesus, the innkeeper softens and joins in the celebration.
Six original songs ranging from sweet and gentle to rhythmic up-tempo numbers. All are very catchy, as well as being appropriate for primary use in terms of content and vocal range. Two additional carols included, one contemporary and one traditional, for optional use.
Set, props and costumes may be simple or elaborate as required.
The Director's Pack contains everything you need to stage a successful show including the Director's Book with director's overview, cast list, synopsis, notes, script, score, lyrics, helpful staging suggestions and performance licence application form. The included Enhanced CD contains full vocal demonstrations of the songs for the children to learn and separate instrumental backing tracks for performance use (no pianist required), along with printable files of the pupil script and lyric sheets (which allows you to print off as many copies as you require).
