NOT Such A Silent Night
A sweet Christmas musical with Nativity elements. With appealing songs that are particularly simple to learn, and a straightforward, well-paced script, 'Not Such A Silent Night' will keep all the children engaged throughout. Ideally suited to Key Stage 1.
It's anything but a 'silent night' in Bethlehem! All the animals in the stable make such a racket that they frighten away little Larry Lamb. Lost and all alone, Larry meets a donkey, a camel and a sheepdog, but none of them can help him to find his way home. 'You should have stayed with your Mum', they say. At last, an angel guides Larry home, where he is reunited with his mother, along with a special arrival: baby Jesus! Everyone celebrates noisily, and once again it’s NOT such a 'silent night'!
"'NOT Such A Silent Night' is very sweet! It has a lovely "feel good" factor appropriate for little children and their parents." ~ Rebecca Robinson, Drama & Literacy Co-ordinator, Willingdon

Good Mix Of Gentle And Fun Songs
Review by Julia Hyde - Class Teacher, East Sussex
There is a good mix of gentle and fun songs, they were easy to learn and the children loved them. The lost lamb theme was very popular.
Review by Matt Andrews - Teacher, Hailsham
The lively songs struck a great balance between enthusing the children and being wonderfully easy to learn, therefore, the pupils had lots of fun and didn't get bored during rehearsals.
Songs Were Very Popular
