A large star shines brightly in the night sky, beckoning to be followed. The Three Kings, their many helpers and their camels take to the desert and head west. The little stars join in the adventure, eager to see where the big star will finally stop.
Elsewhere, the shepherds and sheep have spotted it too. They are visited by an angel telling them about the birth of a very special baby in Bethlehem. Moments later, the shepherds are on the move, descending from the hills to see for themselves.
The sheep don’t want to miss out either. They join the great big caravan just as it reaches the town, and everyone gathers at the stable to meet with Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus.
‘Follow The Star’ is a beautiful re-telling of the Nativity story, brought wonderfully to life with a delightful script and seven original songs for enthusiastic young singers.
The story begins at the palace of the Three Kings when they and their many helpers spot the much-awaited star outside (CAN YOU SEE THE STAR?). Once they have woken up the grumpy camels, they all depart without delay in one big caravan/procession to follow the star (GREAT BIG CARAVAN).
The little stars that surround the big star decide they don’t want to be left out so they follow the big star too (WE’RE THE LITTLE SHINY STARS).
On the hills near Bethlehem, some shepherds see the caravan in the distance. They also notice the star and, after a message from an angel, they leave their sheep and travel to Bethlehem before the kings reach the hills (OH, WE HAVE TO GO!).
Desperate not to miss out, the sheep join the caravan when it reaches the hills (FOLLOW THE STAR). They watch as the star comes to rest above the stable in Bethlehem (STABLE UNDER A STAR). Everyone gathers at the stable to meet with Mary, Joseph and the new-born baby (UNDER A STAR IN BETHLEHEM TOWN).
A wonderful adventure, great fun and incredibly catchy songs.
