Wonky crowns, fluffy sheep and PLENTY of cute-factor, the nativity is such a fun part of school life. All of our nativities come with everything you need to put on an amazing show, giving you the time to focus on what really matters: bringing your school community together to have some fun!




You'll be DAZZLED by this brand-new, show-stopping nativity written for 5-9 year olds. Don't Be Afraid! is a positively uplifting take on the nativity story that will send your cast and audience home with enough encouragement to last until the New Year (and beyond!).


The Big Little Nativity is a wonderfully easy and enjoyable telling of the traditional nativity. It’s BIG because it’s a huge story, with show-stopping songs; it’s LITTLE because it’s super-simple for younger voices and easily taught with limited time.

At Out of the Ark, we love nativities (we’ve published over 50 of them)! We feel really privileged to help schools reap the amazing benefits of this festive tradition. Ever since our first nativity, written in 1989, our team have been writing, publishing and producing showstopping nativities for children and schools around the world, and we are so proud that so many thousands of primary schools use our nativities every year.

Working with children is never dull. My approach is to make the children’s experience of the nativity fun, above all else. Polished performances would be lovely, in reality, there’s always at least one kid that is completely tone deaf and sure as eggnog is eggnog, that kid will have the loudest voice and want to stand right at the front!
