Keystages: KS1 & KS2
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 from Sheila Wilson (Hosanna Rock!), 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 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!
