Baboushka is too grumpy to believe the Nativity story. Will she miss out on the great event altogether?
Based on the traditional Russian story of Baboushka, this hilarious musical takes a fresh perspective on the Nativity. Its 10 lively songs will be a catch with all age groups, while plenty of varied, fun roles and optional parts make it suitable for either a class or whole-school production.
Baboushka is guaranteed to entertain singers and audiences alike.

Popular with children and audience
Intertwined parts of the Baboushka story with the Nativity story for our church Christmas Pageant. Baboushka proved to be a very popular play for a range of ages. We had a boy play Baboushka and that was a lot of fun. The songs were delightful.
This play is the best we did it at our school this year and everyone looked happy i was a singer and sung all the songs with classmates i could easily do this play over and over again I LOVE THIS PLAY
I LOVE ALL THE SONGS AND I JUST LOVE IT SO MUCH I REALLY DO
This is a fantastic Christmas play. The chn have loved it. Plenty of parts for all to be involved. A great mix of modern characters with the traditional nativity characters.
