The Donkey’s Christmas Play…….

Tells the traditional, bible based nativity story in a fun way, using

Lots of gentle humour and

Short, rhyming speaking parts (averaging 1 or 2 lines) to make everyone feel special.

Whilst flexible and adaptable and for smaller or larger cast sizes without altering the length, the script is written with 20 speaking parts (3 of which could be shared for a larger cast, but only 9 of which are necessary for a smaller cast)

The script is all held together with a rhyming narration, making last minute changes much easier to accommodate.

  • A “Donkey’s Christmas Nativity Roll Call” performance poem and message to the audience : a fabulous and unique finale for your nativity play, summing up the message that we are all important to God.  All in rhyme and rhythm, this gives everyone involved the opportunity to take a bow as they say their own individual line.  The nativity roll call has become my trademark and I now write one for every script as it is so well received.
  • “God’s Always Been there”: A purpose written Christmas rhyming poem which can, if you choose, be read out to round up the message at the end of your nativity play.

Are you looking for a funny Christmas play script with the cute factor?

As with all of my nativity plays, the Donkey’s Christmas play is…

  • purpose written
  • adaptable
  • easy to learn

As I began writing nativity scripts for my own use as a children’s leader, I deliberately make them…

  • easy to recast in the event of absence or illness, and
  • simple to use regardless of the number of children.
  • INSTANTLY DOWNLOADABLE in an easy to use format.

The nativity script lasts around 25 minutes and is written entirely in rhyme, including the narration and all of the speaking parts, a proven way to make the script easier to remember.

The script includes 5 simple optional songs using familiar tunes with my own easily remembered lyrics, and 1 of my own compositions, with FREE INSTANTLY DOWNLOADABLE MP3 music backing tracks included in case you have no pianist or guitarist (sheet music is included too)

The basic script focuses on the donkey as the main character and, whilst it is written for 20 speaking parts plus non-speaking angels,  it deliberately includes adaptations to make it work for casts of between 9 and 23 actors, plus a large narration which could easily be shared.

As one of my more recent scripts, I do not currently have any testimonials for the script, but I have no doubt that the cute factor of the donkey as the main character, and the message that no-one should ever feel unimportant, will be a firm favourite.
