‘There's a very good balance of fun and serious in the songs, which are lovely, and so easy for the children to learn. It's also great to have the PSHE element in the story. The children very much enjoyed the show, and were humming the songs around the place for ages!’
- MS, Teacher and PSHE Coordinator, Bristol.
There are two 'miracle children' in the story of this heart-warming Christmas musical for juniors: one is obviously the baby born at Bethlehem but the other is materialistic Ricky, who is transformed as he learns the importance of giving. A poignant and entertaining show that is easy to teach and learn, with catchy songs and an uncomplicated script.
What does the Christmas story mean to self-centred Ricky, 2000+ years after the miracle of Jesus' birth? Miracle Child begins with a family party on Christmas Eve and Ricky expecting loads of presents - but having forgotten to find something to give his/her parents. Will he/she sort out this problem in time for Christmas Day?
