Christmas Plays

Just trying to decide which play to do for Christmas with nursery and reception children. Have done a few from Out of the Ark Music and would like to do a new one. Has anyone done The Bossy King or Humph the Camel and would you recommend either of them??

Have done the Bossy King, and enjoyed it, although I think it requires quite a strong bunch of reception kids to carry it off! I also love The sleepy shepherd from out of the ark - have you done that one?

I too have done both of them - if I can remember, I think I preferred Hummph the Camel - tunes are a little more catchy and it was a little lighter and more fun. We had some very strong willing children for The Bossy King which made it as the Bossy King took quite a big role if you went by the book - whereas the role of Humph could be blended in to the story and didnt really need so much of a lead role. Mind you as Helen and Mark Johnson from Out of the Ark Music sent all their children to me - I had to perform all their plays in front of them so I could never remember how it went really - I was too nervous.

How scary!! Thanks for that will probably try Humph then. Although has anyone got the new one "innkeepers breakfast"?

If it's helpful to anyone else we've already done Whoops a Daisy Angel, Sleepy Shepherd and Toby's Christmas drum. They all went well and songs were catchy and easy to learn. I think my favourite is Whoops a Daisy.

Have performed Whoops a daisy angel and the sleepy shepherd( class of mainly boys that year) parents loved both think my favourite was whoops a daisy but this may be due to having a child who fit the title to a tee. :D
