The Shiniest Star heads a large cast in this original version of the Nativity story. This musical score shows melody, lyrics and guitar chords. Ideal for 4-7-year olds, this production was created by music theatre professionals with extensive experience in running children's theatre workshops. It features an easy-to-follow business/fundraising plan describing the responsibilities of each member of the backstage/production team. There is an easy-to-use checklist for the cast with character descriptions, musical numbers for easy rehearsal scheduling, costume fuss-free suggestions, props, percussion suggestions and a final pre-show checklist. Ideas for simple staging, scenery, lighting and choreography are included. A CD with backing tracks (instrumentals only) and performance tracks (with vocals) is included also!
