From one of Australia’s top-selling composers, and the composer of Australia’s best ever selling musical – Man of Steel, we are pleased to present Ian Dorricott’s newest musical, Nativity – ‘the real story of Christmas’.
A completely new, fresh and definitely non-‘precious’ look at the classic Bible story, Nativity could be described as a chamber musical. With two 40 minute acts, this is an easy to stage show that’s just a perfect way to end your theatrical year, requiring no elaborate sets or costumes, but using a well used, on-stage prop box, projections, and lighting to create your settings. Features:
- a story with comedy and drama
- 14 songs of varying styles from dramatic choruses and comic songs to moving ballads
- authenticity — characters and events are theologically and scripturally correct (well, the Magi are treated a little freely!)
- clearly-drawn, credible characters with even roles
- music arranged for a small band of flute, clarinet, trumpet, saxophone, rhythm and bass guitars, keyboard, and percussion
- rehearsal and performance CDs (if you don’t have a band)
The Musicals Samples contain a half script, piano vocal score sample (first few songs) and two songs from the performance soundtrack. Free Sample materials are not suitable for copying and cannot be used in any way for performance.
