A Nativity Play in Words, Song, and Dance
The First Christmas
Conceived and written by Jeremy de Satgé, music by Michael Gryspeerdt
Mary, Joseph, wise men, singing angels and shepherds, dancing animals - it's all here in The First Christmas!
Created especially for elementary school children, this wonderful new musical captures the excitement and love surrounding the story of the Nativity and offers parts for everyone big and small. For the older and more experienced children, there are large roles for both singers and nonsingers. Then there are the wonderful choral parts of the angels and shepherds. Finally, for the young children are the roles of the animals who take part in special dances.
Musically, The First Christmas is very flexible and can be performed using whatever resources are available. It is successful with voices and piano alone, but instrumental parts for flute and/or recorder, violin, clarinet, cello, and tuned and untuned percussion are also available. Adding instrumental parts is another great way to get students involved!
A wonderful musical adaptation, The First Christmas is sure to be a special and heartwarming part of everyone's Christmas season!
