jesus @ bethlehemstable.com - By Sheila Wilson
This popular Christmas musical takes a thoroughly modern look at a thoroughly traditional story, resulting in a wonderfully enjoyable nativity show! It is ideal for KS1 and KS2, and ideal for KS2-only performances.
There are four narrators, plus a cast of at least 22, easily adapted to slightly more or less. The plot is hilarious, as the traditional characters dream of modern inventions such as ‘sat-navs’, mobile phones and ultrasound scans, and imagine how these would help them. Only the children and audience understand these hi-tech dreams, of course!
The five songs are catchy but sound very impressive indeed when learnt and the audience will be laughing at the plot and tapping their feet to the music. They’ll be moved too, as the story comes together poignantly in the stable, before a celebratory finale with handjives. This musical is ideal for both schools and churches. The CD provides songs and beautiful backing tracks.
