The Alphabet Nativity Play; Perfect for special needs, pre-school,primary, all age and inclusion

The Alphabet Nativity Play; Perfect for special needs, pre-school,primary, all age and inclusion

This script is perfect for VISUAL LEARNERS as it is narrated in rhyme as an alphabet poem 26 key words represented by an illustrated letter which is displayed when the keyword is mentioned. Perfect for SPECIAL NEEDS, especially HEARING IMPAIRED as actions are included for the children to do together to represent the word. The story can be ‘walked through’ by actors without speaking parts, although the script also includes 9 simple optional songs too, some of which offer opportunities for character solos if you choose to use them in that way. The songs that are included are particularly well suited for young children, using familiar children's tunes with very simple repetitive lyrics. The lack of necessary stage movement would make it ideal for GROUPS WITH DISABILITIES. Doing the actions as a group would be well suited to any individuals who don’t like the personal pressure or attention of a ‘performance’. The script is easier for THOSE WITH MEMORY PROBLEMS, as the illustrated letters act as a visual prompt and the option of including the 'Action Superstar' can act as a demonstration for the group to copy. There is also an option (which is great fun and I highly recommend) of including an ‘Instructor’ who interacts with the audience in a pantomime style and the already mentioned ‘Action Superstar’ who demonstrates each of the actions to the 26 keywords mentioned during the story. This would make it perfect to PERFORM TO OR AS A WHOLE SCHOOL with the instructor getting the rest of the children to join in, assuming you have someone confident enough to take the instructor role. The Instructor, a sort of pantomime style character, holds signs up for the audience at the appropriate moments (or for the rest of the children/choir etc) to say (‘NO’, ‘AH!’ ‘SH’ etc). In true pantomime style, the response isn’t good enough and the Instructor, also using rhyme and rhythm, tells them so (eg, “That really isn’t good enough…let’s have another ‘ah!’ Remember, he’s the cutest baby that you’ve seen by far!”) I have included a large portion of the script as a preview below to give you a feel of how it will work, together with a copy of the free alphabet poem which is included with the script. The script itself can be obtained from my website www.bestchildrensnativity.com for £9.95 and includes the instantly downloadable script, 9 simple songs using familiar childrens tunes and easily remembered words, sheet music plus mp3 backing tracks, the free Christmas Story Alphabet Poem, and my trademark Alphabet Nativity Roll Call Poem, which gives everyone the opportunity to stand and take a bow and respond in 'register' style. This is a great opportunity to include several aspects and forms of poetry in your curriculum (eg. alphabet poem, story poem, a play in rhyme and rhythm, using nursery rhyme tunes for the songs) and can be used for INCLUSION OF ALL AGES AND ABILITIES AND SPECIAL NEEDS.

A Mean Old Man - Scrooge gets up to date! Full Length Musical for Secondary Schools and Sixth Form

A Mean Old Man - Scrooge gets up to date! Full Length Musical for Secondary Schools and Sixth Form

This is a full length musical packed with outstanding songs - there's no 'filler' here! Scrooge is an estate agent, pay day loan shark, scrap gold merchant with an intern on a government training scheme. THERE CAN BE OVER 60 SPEAKING PARTS. PLEASE listen to the overview or go to the You Tube movie of the songs as performed by pupils at a secondary school. I've attached some of the backing tracks to give a flavour of the quality of the music on offer. There's really too much stuff to put it on to the TES site. I will provide what you need including full scores, backing tracks demo tracks and any other advice you need. Here's a synopsis: A Mean Old Man Synopsis Scrooge is alive and well and living in your local town as the proprietor of ‘Scrooge and Marley’ - estate agent, ‘unwanted’ gold dealer and pay day loan shark. His long suffering clerk is still Bob Cratchit; Bob is on a Government training scheme but the only education he gets from Scrooge is in the school of hard knocks. Cratchit moonlights in a band - he hopes to make it on an X Factor type programme but he has to keep regular money coming in to support Mrs Cratchit and the improbable number of Cratchettes - including of course a simpering do goody Tiny Tim (or Tina depending on casting). The show starts with a dance duet performed to a smoky jazz number ‘Wish For The Moon’ which tells Scrooge that his number is up. The dancers personify giving and taking and dance around a static figure with his back to the audience. Carol singers enter and ask Scrooge for a donation - whoops! Then we have the charity collectors who are dismissed, followed in short order by Darren and Sharon - Scrooge’s nephew and his - well - common (in every respect) law wife. Scrooge refuses their kind overtures and reluctantly gives Cratchit Christmas day off; Cratchit escapes the office and meets up with his fellow band members who wonder what they would do with all that money. As Scrooge reaches home we are treated to the sight of Marley (complete with dreadlocks and FX on Ghetto Blaster) who resembles his cousin Bob very strongly; in his own brand of punk ska he warns Scrooge of the three ghosts who will visit him that night. Scrooge poo poos this and settles down with his Freemans catalogue - he has just opened the ladies underwear section when he is interrupted by what appears to be an early 1960s cheesy pop singer who announces that he is the ghost of Christmas Past (‘long past?’ - ‘not on your nelly - your past - the rock’n’roll years!!)
