“EXCELLENT! We've 20 years experience of Nativity plays and this is by far the best that we've come across!" S. Marshall - teacher

DESCRIPTION: Once upon a time, a little boy called Jesus was celebrating his fourth birthday by holding a fun-filled party! In between some of the exciting party games, Jesus suddenly asked his mother if she would retell the amazing story of how he was born! Enter angels, wise men, shepherds and so on, for a delightfully simple Christmas nativity play.

'Happy Birthday Jesus' contains 7 very easy songs, beautifully sung by an actual four-year-old child! Plus, you get all the backing music, so there is no need for a pianist. The songs are linked by two time-saving, rhyming scripts: Script 1 is a simple play script with dozens of parts. Script 2 is an even simpler narrators-only script. Both scripts are included in your purchase and are fully editable. With added extras like colouring sheets, PowerPoint scenery, PowerPoint song words, song sheets, staging ideas and piano score sheet music, you have everything you need for a fantastic preschool Christmas performance. (Click 'Script Details' tab for samples and more info. Click 'Song Samples' tab for samples from every track).

WHAT'S NEW? LOTS! Two all-new rhyming scripts. One brand new song. All new PowerPoint scenery and PowerPoint songwords. New artwork for you to use in your advertising. New colouring sheets. All song tracks re-mixed and re-mastered. New CD cover.

CAST SIZE: Very flexible. There are any number of parts from just a handful of children, up to 100+.

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 will find contained within your purchase.

SHORT ON REHEARSAL TIME? Ideally you should allow yourself a few weeks for rehearsals, but if you're short on 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 narrators-only 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.)

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 orders@learn2soar.co.uk if you wish to receive your goods with a 30 day invoice, along with the additional £10 charge.

UK Delivery

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.


Overseas (Non-UK) Delivery

OVERSEAS [NON-UK] DELIVERY (£8.99) : NON-UK CUSTOMERS ARE ADVISED TO READ ALL THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION BEFORE BUYING FROM US:

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.

4) BFPO: British Forces Personnel based Overseas are counted as UK customers and can ignore the above information as long as a "BFPO" address is used.

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."
by 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!"
by 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. "
by T Blick

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!"
by N McNamara
