Nativity! The Musical.

On tour

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

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.

The critical consensus

Beg, borrow or steal to get a ticket, this really is an unmissable show.

*****Lauren Humphreys, The Reviews Hub, 07/11/2018

A family show that features a little wit, a decent measure of goodwill, and lashings of pure showbiz cheese.

***(*)(*)Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman, 12/11/2018

With such a tremendous cast, beautiful staging and infectious music Nativity! The Musical is the epitome of a feel good show and I can't recommend it highly enough!

*****Natalie O'Donoghue, Broadway World, 08/11/2018

All in all, this is a feel-good evening for all ages, delivered at a whirlwind pace with slick choreography and sheer delight from all onstage, as well as catchy songs you’re guaranteed to be humming for weeks to come.

****(*)Lindsay Corr, Edinburgh Guide, 29/11/2018

It’s funny, touching and infectiously festive.

****(*)Claire Wood, The Wee Review, 29/11/2018

It doesn’t feel like a cash-in, the effort involved is astounding for what may easily have been a quick festive piece to capitalise on a name. Nativity! the Musical is a production with staying power, perhaps enough to take over its namesake as a Christmas tradition.

*****Dominic Corr, The Reviews Hub, 29/11/2018

A high-octane, utterly feelgood show that features a whole host of future stars.

****(*)Hugh Simpson, All Edinburgh Theatre, 29/11/2018
