This is a simple Nativity Play, designed to be the central part of an All-Age event, such as a "Family Carol Service". Surround it with some Carols, some prayers, and a short Bible talk about the Good News of Jesus, and you've got your service! It's tried and tested, and takes only a couple of rehearsals to set up. Hope you can use it!
The Bible events are narrated and acted out in 4 scenes, with children coming together to sing songs between each scene. The play is fairly simple, with most speaking done by one or more Narrators, who should be older children or young people who can cope with the amount of speaking. Younger children can take the other parts, which have only small (and memorable) amounts of speaking.
