Nativity Play Crisis

Nativity Play Crisis. A Teacher brought to his knees –  by Three Wise Men? Maybe someone needs to look at those words ‘Christian children all must be mild, obedient, good as He’(from Once in Royal David’s City)  a little more carefully.

With 24 hours to go, this Nativity has all the signs of being a total disaster. Can Mr Brown pull it back from the brink? Can he prevent the head teacher from finding out the horrible truth?

Even with a public health warning, this Nativity play should definitely not be read by any but the most hardened teachers – preferably well in advance of their own nativities!

And don’t forget your FREE Christmas Jokes!

Cast Size: 30 – this number easily adjustable up or down. Duration:   Around 25 Minutes Reading Time – not including carols

Nativity Play Crisis review:

‘It listed a cast of 30 but was easily adaptable to accommodate our 20 students. The original play provided a great premise and story and was filled with lots of humour that our students and audience loved. It was a hit!’

Nativity Play Crisis Sample Text

Shepherd 1:         Hey! You come and do this Nativity play without us if we’re so rubbish!

Shepherd 2:         Yeah! Let’s see you, Mr Brown, doing a Nativity play

Whole cast:        (Together) Solo!

(Everybody returns to their original seats, clearing the stage)

Mr Brown:           (Spluttering) But! But!

Joseph:                Ah! No buts, Mr Brown.  Or weren’t you listening to the words?

Mr Brown:           It was just a joke! I didn’t mean it! Please get back to the play.

(Enter Head Teacher)

Head Teacher:    Ah! Mr Brown!

(Looks around at ‘cleared stage’, looking puzzled)

Head Teacher:    Oh! Have we not got started yet? Can I remind you? You only have til tomorrow! And (laughing) we can’t keep these children here overnight!

Mr Brown:           Overnight! Ah yes, that was it. We were just thinking about the words of Silent Night. A bit of quiet reflection, Head Teacher!

Head Teacher:    Well, Mr Brown! I am impressed! Considering all the excitement I know the children must be feeling, you are doing a wonderful job keeping them so calm.

(Joseph starts to stand up in protest and is pushed back down firmly by Mr Brown)

Mr Brown:           Oh they really are the best behaved children in the whole school!

Head Teacher:    Ahh! A real credit to your teaching skills, Mr Brown! And there was me worrying – this being your first Nativity and all!

Mr Brown:           Oh no need to worry, Head Teacher.

Mary:                   Not when he’s going to be doing his first Nativity – solo!

Head Teacher:    Solo? What does she mean, Mr Brown?

Mr Brown:           Oh just a little joke, Ma’am. Mary and I – always engaging in banter! Watch that halo, Mary – we don’t want it slipping!

Mary:                   No, I said ‘solo’, sir! Not halo!

(Mr Brown pushes Mary back into her seat)

Mr Brown:           Of course, Mary!

(To Mary, Aside) Can we talk about this in a minute?

(Mary nods)

Mr Brown:           So, Head Teacher. If you don’t mind? The children and I need a little quiet time – to think about those words.

Head Teacher:    Very well! But don’t think about them too long. We don’t want you running out of time!

(Exit Head Teacher)

(Three Wise Men stand up and form a menacing circle around Mr Brown)

Wise Man 1:       Time for some serious negotiation!

Wise Man 2:       Don’t think we’re letting you off the hook!

Wise Man 3:       You’d better bring something good to the table!

Mr Brown:           Hey! You’re meant to be three wise men from the East – not from the Mafia!
