‘The wonderful thing about Shepherd Little was that the children - even the shy ones - couldn't get enough of it, no matter how many times we rehearsed. The children made the characters their own and the parents were stunned by how much they'd achieved!’  - YH, Speen Pre-school, Bucks.


Product Description

A brand new nativity for 3 to 5 year olds. Shepherd Little, Bethlehem's smallest resident, has a little trouble with the truth. So, when he makes a claim he's seen a person with wings who has an amazing story to tell, who on earth's going to believe him?

The book contains all you need to produce the show, including CD with performance tracks, script with stage directions, production tips, read-aloud story, cast list, props/costumes tables & piano score with guitar chords.

Told in 7 catchy, simple songs this fresh, charming nativity story has been voted ideal material for Stagecoach Theatre Arts Early Stages classes.

Approximate Duration: 15 mins
