NATIVITY! THE MUSICAL TO OPEN AT THE REP IN 2017
We're thrilled to announce NATIVITY! THE MUSICAL will premiere at The REP in October 2017.
NATIVITY! THE MUSICAL will be written and directed by the creator and director of the films, Debbie Isitt. Debbie said:
“I've always believed that Nativity! would make a fantastic stage musical. It is so full of joy and the children are so sweet and funny and the songs so catchy that it lends itself to being the perfect Christmas musical. Now we've been able to assemble our theatrical dream team, I can't wait to get started on creating an unforgettable stage show”.
Every child in every school has one Christmas wish, to star in a Nativity, and at St Bernadette's School they've decided to mount a musical version! Join teacher Mr Maddens and his crazy assistant Mr Poppy as they struggle with hilarious children, unruly animals and a whole lot of sparkle and shine to make everyone's Christmas wish come true. Featuring all the favourite sing-a-long songs from the smash-hit films including Sparkle and Shine, Nazareth and One Night One Moment. NATIVITY! THE MUSICAL promises to be the perfect feel-good comedy for all the family.
