The Race to Bethlehem! A Christmas Musical for EYFS/KS1

The Race to Bethlehem! A Christmas Musical for EYFS/KS1

The Race to Bethlehem is a heart-warming version of the Christmas story for younger children (ages 4 to 8) to perform. In the story we meet Farmer Dan’s pigeons and Fluff, a little pigeon who prefers walking to flying. Every year, the village farmers hold a race to Bethlehem for the pigeons and Fluff is determined to get there. On the way he meets Joseph and Mary, who are on their way to Bethlehem too… The Race to Bethlehem story is written simply for young children to learn easily. The 7 original songs are catchy and fun to sing, easy to learn and remember. In addition there are two well-known songs – Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (with an additional verse) and Away in a Manger. The script includes stage directions to help with your performance. I hope the children, their teachers and parents enjoy the story of Fluff’s journey to Bethlehem and his encounter with the Nativity story!

Christmas play 'When the 3 kings got lost'.

Christmas play 'When the 3 kings got lost'.

I wrote this play based on the nativity story - based mostly on the 3 kings who get lost trying to find where baby Jesus is being born. I used lots of local references - to the local hospital, a nearby toll bridge and a local hotel / castle - but it should be easy to substitute in local landmarks near you. It has 21 speaking parts, suitable for KS2 and Y2 children) and as many parts for ‘farm animals’ as you want (non-speaking parts). There are places suggested for 6 songs, there are some suggested songs but you could put in any songs of your choice. We performed this to the parents at Christmas a few years ago and they loved all the local references, it went down very well.

Nativity play for KS2 written as TV Evening News

Nativity play for KS2 written as TV Evening News

I wrote this play for our whole school, we are in a small village primary school but it could be easily adapted for a KS2 class. It has 7 suggested songs (carols such as ‘O Little town of Bethlehem’ and ‘Once in Royal David’s City’ ) but these can be deleted or substituted as required. There are 26 parts, 4 of which are non-speaking parts. It only requires very simple props. It tells the story of the nativity but through an evening TV news report. I’ve left spaces to substitute in the name of your school and the names of the different reporters with the children’s names.

play based on 'Around the World in 80 Days'

I wrote this adaptation of ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ for our Christmas play but it could be used at any time of year. The main characters visit ‘different countries’ which offers lots of opportunities for children to do songs and dances from different places, I’ve used a French song, an American line dancing scene and others - but they could be adapted to whatever skills/ strengths your children have. There’s around 19 speaking parts and also lots of opportunities for singing and dancing for various groups of children. I use it as a whole school play in our very small village primary school but it could easily be adapted for a KS2 class.

I wrote this adaptation of  'A Christmas Carol' for our Christmas play.

I wrote this adaptation of 'A Christmas Carol' for our Christmas play.

I wrote this adaptation of ‘A Christmas Carol’ as a whole school Christmas play for our very small village primary school, it was very popular with the parents. It has roughly 30 parts - but some can be ‘doubled-up’ if needed. There’s also a suggestion for KS1 children to perform a song and dance at one point but this can also be adapted if needed. There’s suggestions for songs at different stages in the play but these can be dropped/ substituted as required. I usually ask KS2 children to take the speaking parts, there’s a main character (Scrooge) and most of the other characters have roughly 2-6 lines to learn. This could easily be adapted for a class Christmas play, probably Year 2 upwards.

Christmas play The Never-ending Winter

Christmas play The Never-ending Winter

I wrote this Christmas play based on a folk tale, it has 34 parts (but some could be doubled - up if needed) and it contains suggestions for songs to sing a different parts of the play but these can be dropped / substituted as you wish. The main character has 15 lines and most characters have around 2 - 6 lines, there are also a few non-speaking parts. The narration of the story is told in rhyme and there’s the option of a child singing a solo, if wanted. The props are minimal and easy - just spades for the villagers and a throne (decorated chair) for Father Time and the costumes should be fairly easy - I usually ask narrators to dress in plain dark clothes and there’s a Wicked Winter Witch who has one costume change (into a sparkly gown and wearing a crown). I will use it for the whole school (we’re in a very small village school) with KS2 taking the speaking parts and I’ve put in an option for KS1 children to do a song & dance part way through - but it could easily be adapted to use with a class, probably Y2 upwards.
