This 25 minute nativity play tells the traditional, bible based nativity and blends the story with a modern Christmas Eve in a fun way using rhyming narration and including…
- the nativity story for Grandpa to READ (no script to learn)
- 22 short rhyming speaking parts (averaging 2 to 4 lines) (Can easily be shared differently for a smaller or larger cast)
- with the option to include the character of Santa/St Nicholas.
- It is flexible and adaptable for ANY CAST SIZE (customer feedback puts the smallest cast to date at 9, and the largest 150)
The script has received some fantastic customer feedback and uses simple song words to the following familiar tunes (including sheet music and FREE midi backing tracks)
We wish You a Merry Christmas
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
Oranges and Lemons
Children of Jerusalem (the tune of a simple children’s Easter hymn)
Plus my own simple, and catchy “Santa’s Song
The Saginaw Children’s Worship Festival in USA used this script in 2011 and needed so little rehearsal that they were able to perform the script on the same day that they received it!
The script begins with the narrators lines…..
Hello, and welcome to everyone here.
It’s lovely to see you at this time of year.
I’m sure, there’s no doubt, that you all know the reason
For our celebrations at this special season.
It’s not about presents, or parties or fun,
Or family games, when all’s said and done.
They do have some value (they all have their worth)
But none is as special as Jesus’ birth.
So now as we start our nativity play
We have a clear message to give you today……
We start as our children are sat up in bed
(When each of them should have been sleeping instead!)
The script continues with a children’s bedroom scene the night before Christmas, where between 1 and 5 excitable children, dressed in pyjamas and dressing-gowns, begin the acting (all in rhyme). They are interrupted by Grandpa, who then reads them a bedtime story (the nativity). Each nativity scene is introduced by Grandpa’s reading and then continues in rhyming couplets for more children to act.
If you have any specific questions, by all means email me and I will be happy to help.
