The Lucky Owl is looking for somewhere that she can spend the night.

Expecting to be turned away, she is filled with joy to be asked to stay. A beautiful baby has been born, guests arrive with gifts and they are all welcomed to join in the most wonderful celebration.

With seven lovely songs and a simple script, this delightful musical play is perfect as a nativity play for early years or if you are looking for nativity plays for infants.

The songs on 'The Lucky Owl' CD are performed by Niki Davies.

The editable WORD version of the script is also available when purchased alongside a performance licence.

Extras

Synopsis

Owl sits high in the tree, watching the world go by below. As night draws near and the wind grows cold, she spies a weary man leading a donkey with a beautiful lady on its back, making their way towards Bethlehem. But Owl has no time to wonder who they might be, she has to fly! Fly to find a warm and cosy place to sleep for the night.

But as hard as Owl may try, there's no room in bat's cave, squirrel's hollow tree, mouse's hole or in any of the houses. Just like the tired and forlorn couple who find there's no room at the inn.

But then, Owl finds a cosy stable with a big surprise waiting inside. Expecting to be turned away again, she is filled with joy to be asked to stay. A beautiful baby has been born, guests arrive with gifts and they are all welcomed to join in the most wonderful celebration.
