This new musical is an original and sensitive telling of the traditional story of Baboushka the gift-bringer – a Russian legend. Her story is one of a never-ending search for the baby who was to be King of heaven and earth. She is said to leave gifts by sleeping children at Christmastime in the hope that one of them is the Christ Child. It’s a story about giving.
The Gift Bringer features varied but straightforward songs that enable all the children to join in. There are plenty of small speaking parts that are easy to learn. The free CD includes both backing tracks and vocal versions of the songs, and photocopiable song texts.
