Find out about Christmas musicals and nativity plays for primary schools.
Frantic Productions write and publish musical Christmas shows and nativity plays for primary schools. Our customers often comment that our musicals are a ‘bit different’. We hope you will agree. Below we describe just a few of our shows, but please visit our website to explore our full catalogue for nursery, infant and junior ages.
For Reception and Year 1, A Christmas Tail is a quirky little musical about Minty Mouse who lives in a book shop and overhears a customer talking about a ‘Christmas tail’. With the help of his animal friends he discovers that it means the nativity story. But, of course, he gets his own mousey Christmas tail in the end! There are parts for cheeky mice, naughty cats, spinning spiders, wise bookworms and a short nativity scene is included.
For upper Key Stage 1 and lower Key Stage 2, The Angel’s Harp is a ‘very musical nativity’ indeed. Adina the angel drops her harp from a cloud and flies down to Bethlehem to find it. In her search, she meets the nativity story characters – and what a musical bunch they turn out to be! The innkeeper’s ceilidh band, the shepherd’s conga and the wise men’s fanfare are just some of the musical treats in this rather unusual nativity production. A great show case for your pupil’s musical talents.
If you require a winter musical without nativity content, KS1 children will love the story of the The Seven Little Penguins. Goggles the penguin precariously pursues a polar bear and snow fox who rob the family igloo. With the aid of helpful icicles and PC Blubber the walrus detective, Goggles triumphs in the end – of course! (Watch youtube clips of this show online.) Alternatively, How Rudolph Got His Red Nose is a magical Christmas time show including the famous song ‘Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer’.
For KS2, or indeed for a whole school Christmas performance in which early years and infants can participate very easily, Santa’s Christmas Circus Extravaganza! is a most festive variety-style show. Your audience will marvel as your school hall is turned into a stunning circus ring. With magician wise men, shepherds hypnotising their sheep, juggling teddies, Santa’s formation dance team (a la Strictly Come Dancing!), Neddy the talking donkey’s ventriloquist act and lots more besides, this is a Christmas show never to be forgotten – and it is also endlessly adaptable.
All Frantic Productions musicals come with a CD of vocal tracks and plain backing tracks, script with performance guidance and piano scores with guitar chords. Prices vary between £20 and £30. Please note, a performance licence is required if you wish to perform one of our shows, and there is a 40% ‘early bird’ licence discount if you request one at the time of ordering your show.
