The animals in the farmyard are patiently waiting for a new baby to arrive. Will it be a lamb, a calf or a foal? They wait and wait and as time passes they begin to worry. Will the precious new baby ever arrive?
Then something wonderful happens. As they sleep a beautiful golden star begins to shine over their stable and Mary and Joseph wearily enter and rest their heads in the hay. When the animals awake they find a very special surprise waiting for them.

'Is There A Baby In There?' is a wonderful ensemble piece. Lines can be spoken by individuals playing the different animals, or by groups of children playing those animals.
The animals mentioned directly within the script are:
Cockerel, horse, mouse, cow, donkey, mule, goat, chicken, barn owl, insects.
Additionally, there are roles for shepherds, kings, angels, a golden star, and non-speaking roles for Mary and Joseph.
The script is easily adaptable and would work for a small cast or a much larger cast, with songs divided up neatly between groups. The editable WORD version of the script is available for £9.95 when purchased alongside a performance licence.
