SHORT ON REHEARSAL TIME? Don't worry, we know from experience that it's possible to rehearse this Nativity play in just a few days  What's the secret? During the show, read from the script so that no one has any lines to learn. As for the songs, cut some out if necessary and simply divide the rest up! Don't get ALL the children to learn ALL the songs, instead share them between children or classes, so that no one has more than 2 or 3 songs to remember. If you follow this advice, you may even be able to rehearse this show in just a few hours!* Save even more time and money by downloading now and starting your preparations straight away!

*Please note this is not a guarantee. Please listen to the songs and view the script before deciding how much rehearsal time your pupils will require.

 

Satisfaction GuaranteeABOUT THIS MULTIPURPOSE PRODUCT: Recommended for ages 3-5, ‘HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS’ is a 15-20 minute delightful nativity performance. It contains 6 very easy Christmas songs (all beautifully sung by an actual four year old child). Plus you get all the backing music tracks – NO NEED FOR A PIANIST. The songs are linked by a simple time-saving script which consists of a few very short simple narrators’ parts. The CD also includes a CD ROM section, easily accessible from any computer, which contains everything you need to help you stage a great performance... script, ideas, PowerPoints, songsheets, sheet music, OHP masters and more - everything you need all on one amazing CD!

EDITABLE SCRIPT: Please note that currently, an editable version of this script is contained within the download version of this product but NOT as part of the CD version. However, CD customers can have an editable version of the script emailed to them upon request.

PARTS: As few as 10-20 parts or as many as 90+. If you're performing with a large number of children, the parts can be split up in the following way: Several passages in the script are marked as narrator's parts, which can be split up if required so that 20-30 children have speaking parts. Two main parts both have optional solos. 15-40 walk on parts as shepherds / wise men / angels etc. Plus of course you can have as many children as you want dressed as party guests!

RUNNING TIME: The estimated running time is about 15 minutes. However this time span can easily be shortened or lengthened significantly. Suggestions for how to do this are included in the detailed 'Production Notes' which you find contained within the CD / download.

Happy Birthday Jesus
"We originally purchased this play about 8 years ago. We like it so much that we repeat it every other year. This year will be our 4th performance. Really looking forward to it. Thank you very much."
Nov 29 2013, 12:08 PMby J George

A Big Hit
"I was in charge of the nativity this year and we performed Happy Birthday Jesus with foundation and nursery. All the narration was done by the children themselves from memory and the songs were a big hit with the children and staff. Everybody was amazed at how confident the children performed and they all really enjoyed themselves. Thanks Learn2soar!"
Jan 05 2013, 20:56 PMby C O'Hagan - Teacher

Wow
"Just would like to say thank you for your support in sending the CD's for the material we weren't able to download. We performed two shows which went down with a WOW with the parents. We could certainly recommend your company to others for the professional customer service you deliver. You made our nativity special by supporting us. We wish you all a merry Christmas... FEEDBACK FROM LEARN2SOAR: Fortunately very, very few customers ever report technical difficulties in using our products, but as you can see from this feedback, if issues are reported then we will quickly do everything we can to ensure that your performance is still a tremendous success. "

Highly Recommended
"We used ‘Happy Birthday Jesus’ two years ago in our nursery and the parents loved it. Only problem I had was that not one of mine could sing quite as good as the 4 year old girl on the CD! Our kids are still singing the first song ‘We’re Having A Party’ every time we have a birthday! It's great! I am also a childcare tutor and mentioned your website to my students even though we were supposed to be studying healthy eating as I think children deserve the best and your songs make it easy for the carer to provide the best. I also recommended your website at a childcare conference a couple of weeks ago. Hope you sell plenty!"
