The Story of Christmas…

The Story of Christmas LogoTells the traditional, bible based nativity story, in a very simple way, with the narrator introducing each character with an obvious prompt of “This is the (angel) who…..” etc

The cast size is completely adaptable, requiring just Mary, Joseph and an Innkeeper, but with another 20 optional short speaking parts to make everyone feel special, plus a host of angels.

Actors can be included or omitted without reducing the script (the narrator continues with the lines as part of their storytelling), so illness and absence (and even stage fright) are easily accommodated.

Printable prompt cards (and name tags if required) have been pre-prepared for you and are provided with the script.  Every detail has been considered to minimise your workload.

Audience members can even be included to say lines from their seats in the audience.

You might even choose to use the script to simply tell the story and use pictures as each of the characters are introduced.

  • A “Story of Christmas Roll Call” performance poem: a fabulous and unique finale for your nativity play.  Again, all in rhyme, this gives everyone involved the opportunity to stand (and maybe take a bow), again without rehearsal required, as they are mentioned individually.  This idea has been so well received that it has become my trademark and I now purpose write a Roll Call poem for every script.
  • “The Story of Jesus’s Birth”: A purpose written rhyming poem which can, if you choose, be read out to round up the message, at the end of your nativity play.

So, what are you waiting for?  It doesn’t get much better than this:

Looking for an easy, flexible nativity play?

Angela’s experience of the script…..

“This script REALLY IS the most flexible script you could ever use.  We used it in a brand new building, without a full rehearsal, not knowing how many actors we had until the morning of the nativity!” 

The Story of Christmas play can be performed



As with all my scripts, the Story of Christmas is INSTANTLY DOWNLOADABLE in an easy to use format, and is

  • purpose written to be
  • adaptable with
  • short, easily remembered speaking parts.

As I began writing these scripts to use in my role as a children’s leader, I deliberately make my scripts

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

The fact that this script is brand new means that I do not have any testimonials (yet), but I suggest that you click here for a script preview so that you can see for yourself how simple, effective and adaptable it is.

Alternatively, read on for a summary of how the script works, or scroll down for specific questions and answers to suit your needs.
