The Animals' Nativity

Based on a traditional carol, this fun musical shows the important roles various creatures played in the Nativity. A stoical donkey carries Mary to Bethlehem, a motherly ox offers its manger, a sheep keeps Jesus warm, while doves coo him to sleep. Bossy owls organize the procedure and even street dogs and cats come to visit. The cooperation and kindness shown by these endearing creatures teaches us important lesson at Christmas!

We loved the songs, especially the Cat and Dog - 'Did you make a Reservation?' Josh Simmons, New South Wales, Australia
