Gold, Frankincense And Mirth! - By Sheila Wilson
Laughter is a precious gift. In this heartwarming new nativity musical, the wise men bring joy a-plenty, along with their traditional gifts. Children will love the entertaining play and the seven catchy songs, including a hand-jiving finale and the cool backing tracks. Gold, Frankincense And Mirth! features all the favourite Christmas characters, from Gabriel to Herod, and creates a warm and uplifting end of term celebration for children, teachers and parents. It’s another gem from Sheila Wilson, composer of ‘Hosanna Rock!’, ‘Rock around the Flock!’, ‘Scrooge’ and ‘Christmas Stars (The Xmas Factor)’.
This musical is for key stages 1-2 (ages 5-11) and features songs in a variety of styles, including funky, rocky, a lullaby and a finale medley. It’s suitable for a cast of 30 or more but very flexible for smaller groups of children and, as always, comes with permission for you to make your own adaptations. Songs include ‘Bethlehem Blues’, ‘Put your hands together for Herod!’ and ‘This Amazing Night’. A perfect happy ending for the Christmas term!
The Music Book contains a Piano accompaniment, Guitar chords, Vocals, optional Harmonies, Kazoos, Handbells, Recorders, Glockenspiels and Sleigh bells.
