‘Great fun, especially for the audience who loved the media related content. From the moment I picked up the script and saw the brilliant humour (E Bray for donkeys) I knew it was going to be good. And it was.’
- CW, Peterborough.
The Bethlehem Star is an impressive Infant Nativity for Key Stage 1 (ages 4-7 years) and is good for a large cast, accommodating an unlimited number of extras. It breaks down easily into composite parts for rehearsal purposes.
Boys in particular love this Nativity. In "Choir of Angels”, you have a show-stopping song which will bring the house down. There are 31 speaking roles. The script includes extensive Production Notes plus “often forgotten” hints and tips for making your show a success.
This is the funniest Nativity we have seen with humour that Infants can both understand and carry off easily.
A BRAND NEW product called "Sing it!" is available for this musical. This CD-ROM can teach the songs to the children without any teacher input. Children can use it at school or at home (think of the time it will save you!). Most schools use it in class on an interactive white board or in the school hall on the overhead projector to allow full cast practice. This latest version allows Lyrics on or off, Vocals on or off and the facility to practise one line at a time - all features are accessible instantly with one click. Children LOVE learning this way and the product is foolproof.

Also available is a CD-ROM of Backdrops, which contains instant scenery with digital backdrops supplied in both a PowerPoint presentation and as individual JPG files. No more scenery painting! These images may be projected onto a screen or wall at the back of your stage or hand them to a local printer to print onto large boards or sheets in order to create your stage backdrops. They're also useful to print off for cast and stage crew to familiarise themselves with the sets and scene changes. The CD-ROM of Backdrops contains a different backdrop for every scene change.
Another new product is AudioScript, an "Audio Book" style read-through of the entire show performed by professional voice actors. The AudioScript is supplied on a CD and teaches each child their lines, when to perform them and most importantly, HOW to perform them. The copy and repeat method is simply the best and quickest way to learn. You can listen to a sample of the AudioScript product in the "Contents/Songlist" section below.
