New gems, old treasures...

Our lovely new friendship-themed Christmas musical is now in stock!

Nativity ... it takes a village
A brilliant multicultural, inclusive and fun Nativity musical, for ages 5-11, key stages 1-2.
They say it takes a village to raise a child… and in Bethlehem, a kind stable-owner and some local shepherds all played their part in Jesus' early days. In this fun new nativity, a few extra neighbours help too, with a hot meal, a blanket, and even bootees for the lovely new baby! There are plenty of parts for everyone, as well as the busy Innkeepers, the three wise men (with their strange gifts), the shepherds, who can't believe their eyes, and a host of angels. In the final song, children from all nations can wave banners or join hands in friendship.

Nowadays the world is our global village, and the inclusive, multicultural tone of this Christmas musical, plus the catchy music (five fun songs and a gentle lullaby) and endearing but simple play, make it a perfect choice for children everywhere!

Or maybe you'd like to try something else from our range of much-loved musicals. Here are some suggestions:

The Tiptoe Nativity is an easy and very appealing production, which all young children will adore! This charming musical has five songs, easy narration and just a few simple words in the optional speaking parts. Every child can join in by throwing confetti, carrying a lamb, or bringing a present to the tableau, tiptoeing, jumping, clapping, and, oh yes, sneezing! There's no need for a stage, and remember that the occasional helper crawling on to guide the action, or whispering a prompt, just adds to the fun.
  STABLE STORY! - KS1 & easy 2.
This captivating nativity is perfect for young children or mixed ages, as the youngest ones, dressed as stable animals, open the show with an easy song and can then stay onstage, or come and go. There are thirteen speaking/singing parts, plus any number of animals, angels, soldiers, inn keepers – and as always, we give full permission to simplify, or to add extra speaking parts. Stable Story is wonderfully adaptable to suit your needs, and makes a really uplifting Christmas show.
Nativity Rock! has seven original, catchy songs and entertaining play telling the Christmas story with flair and enthusiasm, which children and audiences will love. The show begins and ends with a hand-jiving celebration, and in-between are a stirring gospel song, a gentle lullaby, and three more toe-tapping, rocking numbers. There are approximately 30 speaking parts, including a ‘director’ and his two stage assistants, but this number is flexible. Great fun!
Everyone’s talking about the Xmas factor! It’s perfect if you’re looking for an impressive Christmas show. Two angels (Reub and Ish) narrate comically as we go back in time to the first nativity, with God holding auditions for the key parts. Everyone does well apart from Herod who reckons he should be the King of Kings, and isn’t impressed when the part goes to a baby! There’s plenty of fun as well as some poignant moments as the story unfolds and, after several hiccups, everything concludes in a beautiful tableau.
SCROOGE! A Ghost of a Chance KS2 & 3.
This entertaining adaptation of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, by Colin Baker (Doctor Who) and Sheila Wilson (Hosanna Rock!), makes a perfect Christmas production. The script is witty, clever and sharp, the characters appealing, and the eleven songs captivating. It has been performed in the Royal Albert Hall as well as in schools and theatres across the country, to great acclaim.
Seven Lessons and Carols is a charming Christmas service for children (or families) of any age, suitable for schools and churches. It has seven carols: five new and original, composed by Sheila Wilson, and two traditional. The readings have been shared between 25 children, but this number can easily be adapted to the size of your group. It’s a perfect choice for an easy but meaningful and enjoyable Christmas service.

We have thirty Christmas musicals to choose from at our user-friendly site, plus kazoos and sleighbells and music for round the year.
