O COME ALL YE FAITHFUL: A 'Poptastic' Christmas carol based nativity performance for ages 7-11.
DESCRIPTION: 11 traditional carols, are given an up to date sound. With a time-saving script consisting only of basic narrators’ parts (largely taken from a modern version of the bible), you have all you need for a very simple nativity performance with a 21st Century twist. Script Sample Here
CAST SIZE: Very flexible - as few as 10-20 parts or as many as 100+. 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 for narrator/s. These can be split up if required so that 30-40 children can have speaking parts. There are also up to 20-30 walk on parts as shepherds / wise men / angels etc. In addition, many of the songs can be split up to allow a large number of children to sing solos if required. Or if the whole school is performing it, why not get each class to perform just one or two songs each - making the whole performance very quick to rehearse.
RUNNING TIME: Flexible - the estimated running time is about 30-40 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 your purchase.
FREE LICENSING: Currently no licence is required for this product.

SHORT ON REHEARSAL TIME? Ideally you should allow yourself several weeks for rehearsals, but if you're short on time, don't worry, we know from experience that it's possible to rehearse this performance in just a week or so. What's the secret? During the show, read out the narrators lines so that no one has any lines to remember. As for the songs, simply divide them up! Don't get ALL the children to learn ALL the songs, instead share them between children, classes or year groups, so that no one has more than 2 or 3 songs to learn. If you follow this advice, you may even be able to rehearse this show in just a few days!* 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.)
LICENCING: FREE - NO LICENCE IS REQUIRED TO PERFORM THIS MUSICAL.
PLEASE NOTE: The script consists of all the songs linked by narrators parts. It is not a "play script" in that it doesn't have separate speaking parts for the different characters. However it is possible to easily add your own additional speaking parts if required.

SCHOOL INVOICE ORDERS: Our school invoicing system is not normally available for use by non-UK customers. However, in exceptional circumstances (e.g. if your school's payment procedures prohibit the use of a credit card), then we will provide goods for overseas schools, with a 30 day credit invoice, providing your establishment passes certain security checks. There is also an additional 'Overseas Banking Charge' of £10 for this service, to cover the banking costs we incur for accepting a bank payment in a foreign currency. Please email us at email@example.com if you wish to receive your goods with a 30 day invoice, along with the additional £10 charge.
UK STANDARD DELIVERY (£1.99): All CD orders are usually dispatched via standard first class royal mail within 24 hours of the order being received. Therefore under normal circumstances most customers receive their orders within 1-3 working days. However at peak times of the year (October-November) please allow a little bit longer for your order to arrive.
UK NEXT WORKING DAY DELIVERY (£7.50): The option for UK customers to have their order delivered via "Next Day Delivery" is available for phone orders only on 0844 357 8473. However during times of heavy demand we reserve the right to withdraw this service without notice. Orders via Next Day Delivery must be placed before 2PM.

1) OVERSEAS PAYMENT OPTIONS: Please see the adjoining 'How To Buy' tab for various payment options.
2) CUSTOMS DUTY CHARGES: We are not aware of any country in the world, which will charge you an additional customs charge, for you to receive delivery of any of our goods.
3) DELIVERY CHARGES & TIMESCALE: If you have ordered physical goods for delivery, £8.99 will be added to your order for delivery costs. (Downloadable products / licences have no delivery charge.) This £8.99 price is for the 'Royal Mail International Tracked & Signed Service'.
Your order will normally be dispatched by us within 24 hours of the order being made, (except at weekends / public holidays).
Deliveries will usually take 5-10 working days at the most to reach you. However, this timescale is not guaranteed. Please note that if you have ordered from a remote part of the world, your order may take up to four weeks to reach you. For this reason we highly recommend that overseas customers consider buying downloadable products rather than physical products, which is always an instant way of receiving your purchase.
If you require goods to reach you faster than the usual 5-10 days, then we do have express delivery options available, upon request, which can get the goods to you in 1-3 days. However, these services are understandably very expensive, with delivery prices ranging from £35 to £95 per order. If you wish to pay extra for this premium service, then please phone or email us.
