The logistical and emotional challenges that society has faced over the course of the last year have been innumerable, and even more so for schools trying their very best to keep teaching and learning going in the most trying of circumstances. Knowing that schools will want to keep things as ‘normal’ as possible, and recognising that the school nativity is very much part of that normality, “A Very Special Baby” has been conceived to meet the needs of this new ‘normal’: a smaller cast, fewer songs, a shorter and editable script. But the content is as strong as ever, and we hope provides the case with a truly enjoyable and meaningful experience.


Every night the stars light up the night time sky. They sparkle, twinkle, float, flicker, dance and shine. But suddenly they have something new to do. They listen to the angels, because the angels have some very important and exciting news (A VERY SPECIAL BABY).

The stars are even more excited when they see Mary and Joseph on their way to Bethlehem. Then they hear the angels planning to tell the shepherds all about it. Not only that, but the baby has now been born. The stars watch as the shepherds leave the hills to rush to Bethlehem as fast as they can (HURRY UP).

But then, there’s a commotion in the sky, and the angels have a problem. Three kings are making their way on their camels to see the baby Jesus, but it’s too dark and they can’t see where they’re going. The angels are very worried, but then the big star saves the day. She shines as bright as can be and guides the kings all the way to see the baby Jesus (SHINING)

The stars and the angels watch as the kings give great gifts to the baby. Jesus is born for all, and now, the stars, the angels, Mary and Joseph, the shepherds and the kings rejoice at the wonderful news (REJOICE)
