Audition The Play

Here you can audition the play and start to get a feel for how this would fit in to  plans for your Nativity.

The play tells the story of a child's misconception about the countdown to Christmas (Advent) and his/her expectation of chocolate and presents without a second thought for the actual reason of why we celebrate Christmas. It is presented with beautiful songs and dialogue that includes great humour throughout telling both the reason for advent and including the traditional Nativity scene. The play brings the audience in, takes them on a great journey and then with audience participation in the final scene, wraps them up with a tear in their eye and sends them home all ready for Christmas!

The play starts with the Spirit of Christmas dancing from one side of the stage to the other with her own bespoke music!

She comes to rest at centre stage and starts to speak.

" I am the spirit of Christmas. I am in your heart! I am in your soul! It feels warm. It feels glowy.......You can't buy it!....It's either there...................(With hand over brow looking across the audience) Or it isn't".
