Based on a Key Stage 1 science topic, A Minibeast Christmas is a variation on the traditional Christmas story composed by Pam Wedgwood with lyircs by Debbie Needle. It is told from a rather unusual viewpoint - that of the minibeasts in the stable who find themselves the first to witness the miracle of Jesus' birth. Gentle humour, optional percussion and catchy unison songs characterise this light-hearted musical. Accompaniment CD, script and photocopiable lyrics are included.
The Spotlight series represents a variety of imaginative repertoire for stage or concert performance, from Key Stage 1 to 3+. Some of the cantatas provide scope for creativity through the addition of movement, whilst others are fully-contained 'mini-musicals'. Written appropriately for the age-group by experienced educational composers, here are songs and shows to suit all abilities and ages.
