About Busy, Busy Bethlehem
Busy, Busy Bethlehem
is a simple and effective nursery nativity
play written by Niki Davies. It tells the Christmas story from a new perspective – that of a busy Bethlehem soldier.
Bethlehem is busy, busy, busy with preparations for the day of the approaching census. Watching the excitement and directing the crowds is a little soldier sent to Bethlehem by Caesar Augustus. He loves to organise everybody and thinks that nothing could be more important than being in charge.
So when Mary and Joseph arrive late, the little soldier is initially very cross, but something changes and he can't understand why. He forgets all about organising - could it be because a very special baby is about to be born?
Busy, Busy Bethlehem
includes seven memorable songs and a charming narrative that will really bring the Christmas story to life for young children.
