About The Bossy King

A charming nativity story about a very bossy king who hears about the new King born in Bethlehem and sets out to find him. When he eventually meets the baby Jesus the Bossy King decides to change his ways.

This lovely Christmas musical is simple to stage, enjoyable to sing and delightful to watch. Even very young children will be drawn to the Bossy King which has been written by Niki Davies.

WONDERFUL

By dai

wonderful musical! when i done this in my primary school about 14 years ago.. i loved it, we also re-edited the script a little and came up with the idea 'the bossy king and queen'... what a lovely musical!


Absolutely wonderful!

By Sarah

I went to see my little boy's pre-school production of 'The Bossy King' this morning and it was absolutely wonderful! We only have ten children in the school at the moment and most have just turned three. They were able to carry it off so well, there was hardly a dry eye in the room. I've just been playing the exerpt of 'Look inside' and it brings tears to my eyes. Totally charming.


Pure genius

By Jackarias

Having been heavily involved in this production many years ago, I can honestly say I have never yet to find any other Christmas nativity musical that matches this - another totally unique production from 'Out of the Ark'!
