Musical nativity for the whole school brings Christmas message to life!

A Christmas Story - script cover

Children love performing this delightful musical nativity for the whole school.

True to the Christian message, A Christmas Story combines the best of traditional nativities with a sprinkling of festive humour and captivating, easy-to-learn songs.

Its six short scenes require only simple props that are readily to hand.

Delightful nativity play

The nativity is ideal for performance by the whole school, with years 1 to 6 staging individual scenes and everyone coming together for the finale.

Children from EYFS can join in as extra animals, angels and people of Bethlehem, joining in the singing.

For larger junior schools, with several classes in each year, it can be equally successfully staged by Key Stage 1 with parts shared out to suit.

Easy to stage

The easy-learn / easy-play songs span a mixture of styles, from the upbeat and darkly humorous King Herod’s Song, through the lilting journey number Travelling to Bethlehem, to Mary’s moving Lullaby.

There are plenty of speaking parts, so everyone can get involved.

Musical backing tracks available

The nativity is available with musical backing tracks for note-perfect rehearsals and performance. Ideal for when a pianist is not available.

If you are looking for a whole school nativity to bring the Christmas message zinging to life at your school or church this year, A Christmas Story is ideal!
