First Christmas, The

From Plank Road Publishing

by Teresa Jennings and Karl Hitzemann

A Wonderful Nativity Musical For Your Young Singers

The tale of the Nativity has been told and retold for generations through stories, songs, and presentations. For many, its reenactment is an annual event, complete with settings and props. With the musical The First Christmas, your younger students are also able to participate with their very own heart-warming version of the tale. Written by renowned children's writers Teresa Jennings and Karl Hitzemann, the simple rhyming script and short, easy-to-remember songs are specially written for young children to learn and sing. Time and budget-saving ideas for settings, costumes, and props are also provided to help enhance your production. Though the program is brief, the "aww" factor will last much, much longer.

The Director's Handbook comes with everything you will need for a successful production, including reproducible program covers and posters and a well thought-out set of staging suggestions. And while there are reproducible Singer's Parts included in the handbook, we also provide reasonably priced, pre-printed Singer's Editions to save time.

Songs include:

  • Let Us Tell The Story
  • Journey To Bethlehem
  • Away In A Manger
  • Twinkle, Twinkle Christmas Star
  • Come To See The Newborn King
  • Hallelujah! He Is Born!

(Run time: ca. 15 minutes)
