Find out about nativity plays and musical Christmas shows for nursery, preschool and reception.
Your nursery, pre-school and reception children will have great fun performing Frantic Productions’ nativity plays and musical Christmas shows. The music is written at just the right pace and vocal pitch, the lyrics easy-to-learn, and the CD backing tracks are lightly orchestrated so as not to overpower children’s developing voices.
Nursery Nativity has five charming songs, including Mary and Joseph’s ‘poor old donkey song’ as children like to call it – always a big hit with budding little actors! Nativity for Little Ones has six easy-to-learn songs, a star dance and an angel dance, with bonus track ‘Away in a Manger’. Both shows have rhyming narration parts for an adult to read, requiring minimal or no speaking parts for children.
We also produce shows which celebrate other aspects of Christmas, with less nativity content. Robin’s So Excited! reflects a young child’s excitement as Christmas Day draws near. Little Robin delights in the snow, the postman delivering cards, the lovely Christmas tree, ‘cheeky old Father Christmas’ and the nativity story. The six songs inspire movement, dance and plenty of hopping and flapping of wings! In All About Christmas, the Christmas tree fairy tells Teddy all about Christmas in this bright, colourful, festive musical. Teddy learns about giving presents, Father Christmas and his reindeer, the nativity story and lots more – and the catchy Mince Pie March will have your audience joining in with gusto! Both shows will add a touch of glitter to your Christmas season.
For older or more confident nursery groups, reception and even Year 1, A Christmas Tail is a lovely musical with a little more dialogue. Minty Mouse, who lives in a book shop, overhears talk of a ‘Christmas tail’. With the help of his friends, he discovers that it means the nativity story. But that doesn’t stop him getting his own Christmas tail in the end. There are parts for cheeky mice, naughty cats, spinning spiders, wise bookworms and the usual nativity characters.
All our musicals come with a CD of vocal and backing tracks, script with performance guidance and piano scores with guitar chords. The duration of our EYFS shows is between 20 and 25 minutes. Prices between £20 and £25. Please note, a performance licence is required if you perform one of our shows, and there is a 40% ‘early bird’ discount if you request a licence at the time of ordering your show.
