Nativity Nightmares! is a play within a play, and makes a very entertaining Christmas show. It's 'set' in a school, where tired and harassed teachers are trying to pull together the end of term Nativity (sounds familiar!). The teachers are played by older children, and their pupils by the younger cast. Your own teachers can be imitated (kindly), or not, as you prefer. Even the caretaker has a part to play as art mirrors life. A few disasters strike, but in the tradition of show-business, everything's 'alright on the night'.
There are speaking parts for at least 30, and extra acting parts, although these can all be cut down or combined if you have fewer children. There are nine great songs, which include plenty of two-part singing, a hauntingly beautiful lullaby, some rock and roll, King Herod's blues, and a show-stopping finale.

Everyone's talking about the Xmas factor! It's perfect if you're looking for an impressive Christmas show.

There is plenty of action - and laughter - in this imaginative Christmas show. We flash forward in time every now and then to mobile phones (they would have made booking an Inn so much easier), sat-navs (to locate the stable), and even scanners (a due date), but despite their curious dreams, the nat...
