School Nativity Plays

Total value for money. These scripts really do work and it takes a lot of stress off the teacher and children – no matter what their difficulties may be.

Sue, The Brookfield School, Hereford 

(“Last years Nativity was such a success that I have bought the Grandpa’s Nativity Story script, please start writing next years!”)

Best Children’s Nativity scripts are written entirely in rhyme, including the narration, with

  • lots of small speaking parts to make everyone feel special. The songs use
  • simple, familiar tunes with purpose written words.

Sheet music and FREE MIDI MUSIC FILES are included

“The music really made it and I would have been lost without the midi files as I do not play a musical instrument.  For our actual performance another teacher did play the keyboard and so having the sheet music was essential also.”
Mrs J O’Reilly, Scoil Maelruain Tallaght, Dublin Ireland

As a poet who loves rhyme and rhythm, I write my scripts entirely in rhyme, including the narration and speaking parts, and schools all over the world have agreed that this is what makes them so easy and so much fun for the children to learn.

“My preschool class of 5 and 6 year olds learned the words easily because of the rhyming pattern.  The children are Finnish so the simple language was perfect for them”
Sally Kesälahti, Pre-school in Tampere, Finland

I can GUARANTEE that there is a script to suit your school here.  My scripts have been used all over the world in pre-schools, special schools, primary schools, and even in schools where English is a second language.  Click here to see my customer testimonials for a true indication of how well they work.

GRANDPA’S NATIVITY STORY (as seen in the video above)

Set in an excited children’s bedroom on Christmas Eve it blends a modern day Christmas Eve with Grandpa’s reminder of the traditional, bible based nativity story, read as a bedtime story.

Scripted with 20 small speaking parts (many optional), the narration and acting is all in rhyme, whilst Grandpa introduces each scene by reading from his ‘book.’ Santa/St Nicholas can (optional) be included, with a reminder of the real meaning of Christmas.

In the words of a customer the script is

“Absolutely excellent!  It was very easy for our children to grasp because of the rhyme, and being in word format allowed us to adapt the script to suit our needs”

THE DAY THAT BABY JESUS CAME TO TOWN (NEW for 2013) 

Written from the perspective of the gossiping Innkeeper’s Wife, who was so intrigued by the activity and visitors at the stable that night that she wrote it all in her diary. Together with her downtrodden husband and the narrators, the story is told in rhyme (reading from her diary) whilst being acted out by another 20 scripted small speaking parts (many optional.) Mary’s uniquely amusing dialogue brings an extra touch of humour.

 “Our older children chose the script for its humour, and enjoyed the opportunity to really ‘act’ their parts with attitude and sarcasm!” 
Angela (after using in my own church)

“The Day That Baby Jesus Came to Town” script includes sheet music, backing tracks and purpose written simple words to the tunes of:

SCRIPTS WITHOUT MUSIC

THE SIMPLEST NATIVITY PLAY EVER (NEW for 2013)

Purpose written to remove the pressure of rehearsals and worries about potential last minute changes this script really is the “Simplest Nativity Play Ever.” Scripted for 19 optional speaking parts, plus angels, narrators and an instructor giving rhyming instructions to the cast, ANY actor’s role can be omitted without reducing or altering the script, except for Mary and Joseph.

Script prompt cards are included for those who choose to say their own lines, but the script is written so that the narrator can say any of the actors’ lines instead if preferred (even in the case of stage fright!)

The whole script (without songs) lasts 15 to 20 minutes and references parts of the bible where the story is taken from.

Angela’s assurance: 
“PROBLEM SOLVED! IT REALLY IS THIS SIMPLE! With a confident narrator, this script is possible in ANY SITUATION with ANY SIZE CAST and ANY AGE, and even WITHOUT REHEARSAL.”

The Simplest Nativity Play Ever is deliberately simple so it doesn’t include songs, allowing you to re-use your past favourites but, if you particularly want music, the songs from any of my other scripts will work very effectively, so feel free to ‘Mix and Match.’

(This script is provided as a word document as standard, without extra cost)
