This new musical based on the films has been written and will be directed by Debbie Isitt and will open at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre on 20 October 2017.

Nativity! The Musical will feature music and lyrics by Nicky Ager and Debbie Isitt and will embark on a short tour that will see the production visit: Southend Cliffs Pavilion, Sheffield Lyceum, Manchester Palace, Plymouth Theatre Royal, a London season at the Hammersmith Eventim Apollo and a Christmas season at Leeds Grand Theatre.

Talking about the news, creator Debbie Isitt said:

“I’ve always believed that Nativity! would make a fantastic stage musical. It is so full of joy and the children are so sweet and funny and the songs so catchy that it lends itself to being the perfect Christmas musical. Now we’ve been able to assemble our theatrical dream team, I can’t wait to get started on creating an unforgettable stage show.”

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, unruly animals and a whole lot of sparkle and shine to make everyone’s Christmas wish come true.

Casting for the production has yet to be confirmed. Following Birmingham, Nativity! will visit Southend, Sheffield, Manchester, Plymouth, London’s Hammersmith Apollo and Leeds Grand Theatre, where it will spend next Christmas, running from 20 December 2017 to 6 January 2018.
