About Off To Bethlehem


Off To Bethlehem is the nativity that inspired us to start up Out of the Ark Music in the first place, and it remains as popular today as when it was first launched.

Nine delightful songs present the traditional Christmas story without the need for lengthy narration or dialogue - an ideal nativity musical to stage.

Everything you need is provided in this comprehensive package, including piano music, lyric sheets, backing tracks, percussion parts, stage directions, prop list and teacher's tips.

An Annual Performance Licence is required to perform this nativity.

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 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. Create a recording of the song/s with children singing over the top, whether with our backing track, our vocal track or your own backing track.

  9. Share on public websites including the school’s website, YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, Soundcloud, etc. However Out of the Ark Music must be credited and an inbound link to www.outoftheark.com must be provided. Please note that Out of the Ark Music's original recordings may not be posted to public websites except as an accompaniment to the children singing. However, as a special dispensation, if children are not allowed to sing for health & safety reasons, original recordings may be used instead, as long as they are part of an overall recording or stream of the whole work with the spoken parts, and not just the songs on their own.
  10. 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 2-10 above for these products but does not cover the performance rights in point 1 – an Annual Performance Licence will still be required.
