This 30-minute Christmas musical tells of the birth of Jesus with the fun use of rhyme. There are six distinct speakers who deliver the dialogue in short rhyming stanzas that detail the events of the Christmas story. The lines are so simple that lower elementary children could be assigned parts. Costumed children could reenact a nativity scene. There are eight songs; some of them are new and some are familiar carols done in a new "swing" or "big band" feel. Kids will enjoy learning and singing them. This is a very simple musical to produce.
Listening CD tracks are:
Songbook contains the song lyrics, simple melody accompaniment, drama segments, and activities for the children. Songbook orders in larger quantities may require up to two weeks for delivery.
