If you’ve seen the hit film Nativity! starring Martin Freeman or its sequels, you’ll know what a treat we had at this sparkling musical, which is the perfect start to the festive season.
Adapted for the stage by Debbie Isitt, the creator of the much-loved film series, this production starred West End leading man Scott Garnham as Mr Maddens, Love Island’s Dani Dyer as Polly, Scott Paige as the crazy Mr Poppy, and West End favourites Ashleigh Gray as Jennifer Lore, and Charles Brunton as Mr Shakespeare.
They led an ensemble cast which, of course, also featured the talented children of St Bernadette’s School.
Everyone in the school was excited after Mr Maddens told them a Hollywood producer was coming to see their Christmas show to turn it into a film.
The problem was, there WAS no Hollywood producer. So how could Mr Maddens and Mr Poppy make the children’s Christmas wish come true? In true Nativity! style, that’s how!
This production was hilarious – we simply couldn’t stop laughing all the way through. There were singalong favourites including Sparkle and Shine, Nazareth, One Night One Moment, and She’s The Brightest Star, and a host of new songs.
There were also a few heartfelt moments which brought us all to tears.
My youngsters loved it!
It was the perfect Christmas trip with the children. Nativity! The Musical was a cracker of a night out!
