Show Information


Following a smash-hit 2018 tour and London run, Nativity! The Musical is coming to Mayflower Theatre next December.

Feel-good, funny and full of joy, this cracker of a musical was adapted for the stage by Debbie Isitt, the creator of the much-loved films.

Every child in every school has one Christmas wish, to star in a Nativity, and at St Bernadette's School they're attempting to mount a musical version! Only trouble is teacher Mr Maddens has promised that a Hollywood producer is coming to see the show to turn it into a film. Join him, his teaching assistant the crazy Mr Poppy, hilarious children and a whole lot of sparkle and shine as they struggle to make everyone's Christmas wish come true.

Featuring all of your favourite sing-a-long hits from the movies including Sparkle and Shine, Nazareth, One Night One Moment, She's the Brightest Star and a whole host of new songs, this musical really 'is a heartfelt hit' (The Times).

Book now and join us for some MAYHEM in Bethlehem!
