Click here for a Nativity Play that was sent to me by Karen from Elizabeth, Illinois, who writes:
If anyone needs a “bomb proof” script for the Nativity Play, a children’s production, for this year, please pass along the attached file. It’s based on the Gospel of St. Luke, this year’s cycle. It also starts right at the Prologue, a unique tool used by Luke. We’ve taken selected readings from Chapter 1, then continue in Chapter 2 to the actual readings for Christmas Eve Mass, up to the line 20.
The play is structured so that the older kids have the speaking parts and can deliver them from the lectern with the script in front of them. The non-speaking costumed actors are the younger children who are non-speaking but usually take their roles very seriously.All stage instructions are included.
Please read it and see if you think it might be useful to pass forward to others.
Note: Click on the link as indicated above, and a Word document with the script will be downloaded to your computer. Depending on your computer’s settings, it may not open automatically, so please check your downloads folder for the file.
