The Nativity story was performed beautifully in The Croston Theatre by the children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.
It is census time in Bethlehem and the inn-spectors have been sent in to check that all the accommodation is up to scratch. They are horrified to discover that at one of the inns some visitors have been put in the stable and a baby has been born amongst the animals! It will not do at all! However, as Mary, Joseph and the donkey tell their story and the special visitors explain the good news, the inn-spectors realize that this is no ordinary baby and they declare that the stable is fit for a King!
With eight fabulous songs and a really fun script, the children were simply amazing. It had everything from donkeys singing the blues about the long journey to Bethlehem to the grumpy guests staying at the Inn who complained about spiders in their bath. The Year 2 children in their lead roles were ably assisted by their friends in Year 1 and Reception.
Stunning solo performances, clear speaking voices and entertaining acting – this performance really was a treat for audience members. Well done to everyone!
