Christmas Show – The Star Child -The Christmas Story

Primary School Resource - Christmas Show - The Star Child -The Christmas Story front pageThe exact time and place of the birth of Jesus is the subject of some disagreement, however, this traditional story links his birth with the time of Herod’s rule in Judaea.

Parents always want to see their children performing in the annual nativity show, and they are always so similar.   Therefore, Tim Spencer, the author and composer, decided to create a nativity show that was fun to watch while keeping firmly to the original story. 

Consequently, he composed a calypso number for the arrival of the three wise men, had a bouncy celebration song for the birth and at the end a typical Christmas song.  All songs your children will remember for ever.

He made it a fun and different Christmas Nativity show you can download from https://history-portal.com/product/the-star-child/ that your children can be rehearsing now.
