Nativity! The Musical

NATIVITY! The Musical is returning to Birmingham Rep this Christmas!

Feel-good, funny and full of joy, this cracker of a musical was adapted for the stage by Debbie Isitt, the creator of the much-loved films.

Every child in every school has one Christmas wish, to star in a Nativity, and at St Bernadette’s School they’re attempting to mount a musical version! Only trouble is teacher Mr Maddens has promised that a Hollywood producer is coming to see the show to turn it into a film. Join him, his teaching assistant the crazy Mr Poppy, hilarious children and a whole lot of sparkle and shine as they struggle to make everyone’s Christmas wish come true.

Featuring all of your favourite sing-a-long hits from the movies including Sparkle and Shine, Nazareth, One Night One Moment, She’s the Brightest Star and a whole host of new songs, this musical really ‘is a heartfelt hit’ (The Times).

Since its world premiere at The Rep in 2017, NATIVITY! The Musical has been seen by over one million people during an acclaimed UK tour and three successful London runs. Book now and join us for some MAYHEM in Bethlehem!

Based on the film Nativity!, written and direct by Debbie Isitt and produced by Nick Jones.
