About A Present For The Baby

A Present for the Baby is a delightful nativity musical for infants, which tells the Christmas story from a little boy's point of view.

Baby Jesus just won't stop crying! Nobody knows what to do! Even with the most elaborate gifts, nothing seems to make him happy. Eventually, after kings, queens and noblemen have all tried to help, one little boy calms the baby down with his very special present.

With eight charming songs and a simple script, this enchanting nativity musical really helps us remember that a gift from the heart is worth more than any other.

A Performance Licence is required to perform A Present For The Baby. You are able to purchase an Instant Performance Licence when you purchase this product, or a Standard Performance Licence at any time. For more information, see below.
