About Away In A Manger

  • From the same author as best-selling nativity Whoops-A-Daisy Angel
  • Curriculum links included, with ideas for extension work on the topics covered
  • Simple, easy to learn script that is ideal for 3-6 year olds

Maurice the mule is not happy! All he wants to do is munch away on some fresh hay and settle down for a peaceful night's sleep, but one by one he finds a hen, a mouse, a bird and a spider in his manger and he doesn't like sharing it with anyone!

Chasing them all away, Maurice tries to settle down to sleep when suddenly there is yet more commotion. Why is there a baby in his manger? And why have shepherds and kings come all this way to see him? Join Maurice and his friends as they try to puzzle out exactly what is going on in their busy stable!

Seven fantastically catchy songs and an adorable script make Away in a Manger a future classic children's nativity play.

Now available with a Words on Screen™ eSongbook allowing you to display song lyrics on any whiteboard, computer screen, television or interactive touchscreen. The lyrics synchronize with the music as it plays making them easy to teach and easy to learn!


An Annual Performance Licence is required to perform this nativity. For more information, please see below.

Licence Information

Annual Performance Licence Information


A current Annual Performance Licence is required to perform this nativity to an audience (other than to pupils & staff).

  • You can purchase an Annual Performance Licence above (it is cheaper when purchased as part of a product pack).
  • The requirement for a licence is irrespective of whether admission charges are made.
  • An Annual Performance Licence covers any number of performances of a particular musical or nativity within 12 months of the date of ordering.
  • A new Annual Performance Licence would be required for any future performance(s) outside the date period printed on your current licence.

In addition, with so many of our musicals and nativities purchased in digital format, you need a legal way to install or distribute copies for use around the school. Your Annual Performance Licence will grant you permission to:

  1. Perform the work to an audience (other than pupils and staff in schools). A licence is required even if it is a 'free' performance and this is a worldwide copyright requirement.
  2. Install Words on Screen™ song files from a CD ROM onto more than one computer or onto a network.
  3. Download Words on Screen™ song files from a CD ROM onto more than one computer or onto a network.
  4. Continue to stream Words on Screen™ songs from your Out of the Ark Music online account on any device (beyond your free period) for the duration of the licence.
  5. Copy song files from an Audio CD onto more than one computer or onto a network.
  6. Copy MP3 audio files onto more than one computer or onto a network.
  7. Upload digital content to an intranet or learning platform.
  8. Permit usage of digital content at home for teachers for preparation purposes.

A separate Annual Performance Licence is required for each product title that you use in any of these ways. Please note that if you have purchased an Annual Digital Site Licence – Multi-Product, this will cover the digital usage permissions in points 2-8 above for these products but does not cover the performance rights in point 1 – an Annual Performance Licence will still be required.


How To Renew


You can renew your Annual Performance Licences by simply logging into your account if you have one and going to your My Licences page. Pick the relevant licence and click RENEW.
