Nativity script? from Norfolk Christian song project
The International Song Project, run by Norfolk Christian Tony Triggs, brings children’s words and music together, thus creating links of friendship and song across the oceans.
In Tony's words, “The aim of the project is to link creative children around the world, some writing poems and others turning them into songs. For example, the world’s remotest inhabited island, Tristan da Cunha, has been a positive hotbed of poems, and the slopes of its active volcano have rung with music from Norfolk!”
A project spin-off that may be of particular interest to the Norfolk Christian community is its newly-written nativity play. The play includes a few simple songs, and churches may like to consider performing it in December. Tony said, “It tells the traditional story but in an off-beat way. For example, the shepherds have water pistols to repel the wolves and there’s a ram with over-eager horns. That will appeal to a young actor!"
Amid the fun, the viewpoint is explicitly Christian. The running time is half an hour and there are parts for a dozen performers – easily learned, thanks to the simple rhyming verse.
Anybody who would like more information about the project or would like to view the nativity play script should contact Tony on firstname.lastname@example.org
