“The Teenagers’ Nativity” Free Musical to download and perform – Storyline
The Teenagers’ Nativity is a mini musical consisting of dialogue and 8 songs which depict aspects of the story of the birth of Jesus. It can be performed on its own or be interwoven with the readings and carols of a church or school carol service. Particular songs or scenes can be performed separately if required. There is little in the way of props needed to present this musical so it could be done on the stage or floor of a school hall, at the front of a church or even outside in the open air. A good sound and lighting system is all that is needed apart from costumes.
Most nativity plays tend to be performed by children of primary school age but this play has dialogue and songs which are more suitable for performance by teenagers and even adults. If performed solely by adults the name of the musical might have to be changed to something more appropriate.
Producers may wish to edit the script, add more dialogue or change the title. All that we ask is that the source of the material is acknowledged. The songs and script are provided as a resource which performance groups can use as written or adapt to meet their needs.
Although the musical is delivered using the rock music genre it has a traditional setting and closely follows the New Testament story. Players may wish to add a ninth scene where everyone who has taken part comes together for a reprise of ‘Jesus Christ is Born Today’, which is featured in Scene 4.
Backing tracks and vocal tracks, to enable the performers to learn the songs, are provided as well as a script and publicity material. Performances can be recorded and reproduced electronically with no copyright fees. Organisations are permitted to sell those recordings without having to pay royalties if they wish to raise funds for their organisations or charities.
