Fun, Musical Nativity Play for Young Children with a Mousy Twist !

With lots of mice, animals and a popular nativity ending, 'An Easy Cheesy Nativity' solves those Early Years Nativity worries, with an easy-to-remember format, simple songs, plenty of fun and humour - all securely led by your own teacher-narrator. Bethlehem mice are disturbed one night when lots of animal visitors appear in their barn, looking for 'someone special'. The mice become very excited with all the talk and promise of lots of cheese !

Watch it on YouTube!  Here's a great performance by The Little Cottage Daycare, Guernsey.

6 Original Christmas Songs plus backing tracks

The storyline weaves around 6 catchy, original songs (plus 2 reprises and some 'movement music') and also a traditional 'Away In A Manger' for the final nativity ending. CD1 presents all songs in full (for learning), whilst CD2 offers two kinds of backing track: with background children singing or without, as some younger children prefer some singing support.

Music For Schools Customer Reviews:

The Pepperbox Nursery, Frome
Five Star Customer Review

The music was clear and it's great to have the option of the CD with children singing along to support this very young age group. The songs were very simple and easy to learn and even those of us who are less musical were able to pick the tunes up really quickly. The script was clear and gave good guidelines which we were able to adapt to suit our particular age group.

The Beehive Nursery, Tower House School
Five Star Customer Review

The children, aged 2 - 5 years thoroughly enjoyed learning and performing the play and the feedback from parents and staff was, "it was the best performance we have done" and this tradition goes back many years. So thank you !

Millbrook Combined School and Nursery, Buckinghamshire
Five Star Customer Review

We did our performances this week with our Foundation Stage children and found it really perfect for this age group. This is the first year that we haven't had to adapt or change anything in a play that we purchased. The repetition is great and we managed to include 100 children, most of which are either completely new to English or have it as an additional language. Thanks so much!

Leicester Grammar Junior School
Five Star Customer Review

We have just performed 'Easy Cheesy' for 200 parents with a cast of 75 under 5 yrs children ! It went fabulously well and the parents feedback was full of praise and postive comments. We found the script easy to follow and the storyline was so simple but very effective and the children really enjoyed performing it. Thank you so much for helping take the stress out of putting on a Nativity for under 5's !

First Steps Kindergarten, Kenilworth
Five Star Customer Review

All the parents enjoyed it and were so pleased that many of them came and talked to me about it.
It was by far the best reaction to any performace we had done before.
