Having not yet put together a combination of all of the fabulous feedback that I have received for this script, I can, meanwhile, give the benefit of my experience having used it in my own church, but feel free to click here for the script preview and let it speak for itself!
Who did you have in mind when you wrote the script?
THIS IS A VERY SPECIFIC SCRIPT. Originally it was purpose written for our own church nativity, due to having an awkward age group within our Sunday school. The script was therefore inspired by individuals who were getting to that difficult age between child and teenager, and who were ‘getting too old for nativities’. We had a small Sunday school, and many of the youngest children were too shy to take part, so we couldn’t rely on the cute factor either!
If you can relate to that situation, this script will work for you. The older children lead the nativity using an entirely rhyming script which calls upon some of the congregation to join in at certain parts. Naturally, these narrators have lots of humour written into the script in the form of sarcastic, humorous comments directed at the adults who are joining in!
