What is That Star? - A fun nativity play for children.

"What is That Star?' is a fun nativity play for EYFS and KS1. This rhyming nativity play is full of funny characters from bossy Head Stars and a confused Joseph to beautiful, dancing angels, who bring a message of love.

If you like fun, but simple to learn songs and a funny take on the traditional nativity, this school play for primary school children is just for you.

It's guaranteed to bring a smile and maybe a tear to the audience's eyes.

It also contains what I consider to be our 'hit single' "Bumpy! Bumpy! Bumpy!" because the children absolutely go crazy for it

With the just the right amount of fun and the perfect dose of boogie, this nativity will have you laughing, dancing and toe tapping all the way to Bethlehem.

“Fantastic! The kids love the songs. Especially "Bumpy! Bumpy! Bumpy!" for obvious reasons!” – Ms Brandt – Teacher
