TEN MINUTE (or less) NATIVITY
Just You Wait and See!
Ideal for Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 1
A whiz through the Biblical Christmas Story with two songs
for concert performance or as a mini traditional Nativity
Duration: a 10 minutes
Ideally the choir of Stars sits in an arc (tiered rows would be preferable) facing out toward the audience. A clear floor area is left in front of the singers, where the characters enter and build up the Nativity tableau. A stage block for the Angel Gabriel, and a prominent gold Bethlehem Star cut-out may be helpful.
There are lots of walk-on mini parts with stars who form the choir ? narrators ? (allocate/alter spoken words as appropriate to your performance) ? ancient biblical prophets (several) ?god?s messenger the Angel Gabriel ? cousin Elizabeth ? Zachariah (Elizabeth’s husband) ? Joseph & Mary – shepherds ? angels ? wise men and even the evil Herod.
To this is you want to you can add recorder players and possibly percussion.
