Nativity! The Musical is set to return for a UK tour this year – and ‘characterful’ youngsters are wanted to join the cast.

All children who fall within the criteria above will be sent an invite with full information and the location for the audition.
Nativity! The Musical is written and directed by the creator and director of the blockbuster film series, Debbie Isitt. Debbie said: “We are looking for characterful but disciplined children who can ‘act’ as snobby and superior and yet have a sense of fun and can give over the top performances if required.
“We need the children to have good movement ability - marching, basic choreography and have excellent posture. They should also be able to sing confidently, have basic acting ability and enjoy performing.”
Every child in every school has one Christmas wish, to star in a Nativity, and at St Bernadette’s School they’ve decided to mount a musical version! Join teacher Mr Maddens and his crazy assistant Mr Poppy as they struggle with hilarious children, and a whole lot of sparkle and shine to make everyone’s Christmas wish come true.
Featuring all of your favourite sing-a-long songs from the smash-hit films including Sparkle and Shine, Nazareth and One Night One Moment. Nativity! The Musical promises to be the perfect feel-good comedy for all the family.
It runs at the Liverpool Empire Theatre from Wednesday, October 31 – Sunday, November 4, 2018.
