Little Angel Gets Her Wings
A charming perspective on the nativity story that has huge appeal to infants and parents alike. There is a read-aloud story to help you introduce the characters and plot to the children easily, and you have a choice between dramatised or narrated versions. With catchy songs and an uncomplicated script, 'Little Angel Gets Her Wings' is a delightfully simple Christmas musical for KS1.
Little Angel can’t go to Bethlehem with the other angels because she hasn’t got her wings yet. At first she is sad, but then - determined to see baby Jesus - she sets off on foot. On her way, she helps a donkey, a lamb and a dove, all of whom are in difficulty. When she gets to the stable in Bethlehem Little Angel hesitates, realising that – unlike the kings and shepherds – she has nothing to give the baby. But Mary explains that she does have a gift – the gift of love, which is the best gift of all. At last, because of the love she gave to others during her journey, Little Angel gets her wings!
"A wonderful adaptation of the traditional nativity; we liked it as it kept all stages of the traditional story but with a moral and fun twist. The songs are great - easy to sing and lend themselves to simple but fun choreography. A fantastic resource that made the whole production a pleasure to direct!" ~ L. Glover, Teacher, Portsmouth.

Review by Helen Rightmyer - Fs Co-ordinator, London
The Reception class alone performed this Nativity beautifully. We all loved the songs and the script gave each character a chance in the spotlight. The whole performance had the "wow" factor.

The children enjoyed hearing the story prior to casting - it gave them a good overview. The show gave lots of children the opportunity to actively participate and brought out many hidden talents.Very good songs.

Fun, easy to learn, lively, and a simple message appropriate to all children.
Cheerful And Charming.
Review by Libbie Noakes - Music Co-ordinator, Andover
A lovely balance of jolly and reflective songs with a good flow, a light touch to the story and enough dialogue to enjoy. It is cheerful, charming and deceptively simple.
Simple And Effective.
