School Christmas Plays - Follow that dove !

One Bright Night is a starry tale of the animals living in the fields near Bethlehem, who dream of better food and shelter. Above them, they have noticed a starry light which grows brighter each evening. When a white dove appears to the animals, they follow her into the night, hoping to find a reward at the end of their journey. To their surprise, there is a twist in the tale (like the best of musical plays).

Educational Backing Tracks Included

Any number of pupils can perform One Bright Night and there are good opportunities for whole-group and small-group singing, and with plenty of speaking parts for the older pupils. Like our other musical plays, One Bright Night comes complete with a CD containing the backing tracks for your school's performance, and performed versions of each song to assist rehearsals. Includes large-print script, full lyrics and sheet music for all the songs, arranged for piano/keyboard/guitar. Our Christmas musicals contain all you need for your rehearsals and performance. An electronic PDF file of the script is also available to enable copy/pasting and projecting of the script to assist rehearsals - select the 'WITH' option below during checkout.
