A Modern Musical of the Nativity



Cast: Minimum about 30 (mixed m/f - can be many more) + chorus.
Suggested Age Range: 10 to 13, or 13 upwards
Approx. Running Time: 90 minutes [ + interval]
Music: Mix of solo and group items; scope for choreography; accompaniment written for full orchestra but could be keyboards and/or small band or piano plus percussion.
Set: Open and flexible; works well "in the round": a railway station; a nightclub; a supermarket; a restaurant; house interiors.
Synopsis: If the Three Wise Men had travelled to Bethlehem on a Camel Train operated by British Rail it might have given a different aspect to their journey but the importance of the event would not have been diminished.
This lively musical provides ample scope for director and cast to relate the Christmas story to modern youth and society but maintains a reverence and respect which should appeal to all.
