Angela’s script is fun, relevant and easy to adapt and saved hours of typing.  I love the photo backgrounds and suggestions for directions to actors. Anyone wondering how to do a Nativity Play should download Angela’s package – no need to be defeated by Covid!

The Good News Nativity Play……

Tells the traditional, bible based nativity story in a fun, modern and unique way, using…

  • Gentle humour
  • Short, individually filmed, rhyming scenes, perfect for social distancing
  • Pre-prepared autocues (no need to learn lines)


It is Adaptable for ANY SIZE CAST  (one person could even play every part with some creative editing)

Each witness is introduced in rhyme by the two presenters of Bethlehem Daily from the news show sofa,  and then interviewed by ‘At the Scene Correspondents ‘with an authentic background in the shot behind them.

All of the usual worries are eliminated…

  • Illness …no worries! (It’s all pre-recorded., although the script will work for live and semi live performances.)
  • Rehearsals…no need!
  • Licence fees…no charge!
  • Can’t remember lines…no problem! Autocues are all provided
  • Costumes…no issue!  Let the actors have fun with makeshift things from around the house.


No special equipment, experience or paid software is required, so there are NO HIDDEN COSTS! Even the editing software I have used is FREE and compatible with Windows, Mac  and Linux.

The Cast:            Just be sure that everyone is happy to be filmed, and knows how the filming will be used.  Special permission from the cast and parents of any children will be needed if you intend to upload your Good News Nativity play to YouTube

If used as written it will include 16 speaking parts, plus optional extra parts if you choose to include your own adverts, musical interlude etc.  The scripted speaking parts are:

2 Studio Presenters, 3 Studios Correspondents (Business, Travel and Weather), 2 At The Scene Correspondents, 3 Shepherds, Angel Gabriel, 3 Kings, Mary and Joseph

There are also several options for your own extra additions, such as an angel dance, a musical interlude (maybe have someone sing or play an instrument) and an advert break.  Just have fun with it and include your own ideas to make it as personal and unique as possible.

The Songs:         No songs are included, but there are opportunities for including carols, Mary singing a lullably, a musical interlude (maybe a solo or an instrumental) or links to YoouTube carols.  Just personalise it however you choose.
