About This Early Years Christmas Musical

On a cold, snowy night in the middle of winter, little Robin is shivering away wishing he could be somewhere a little warmer. A little bird tells him of some exciting news about the birth of a very special King far away in Bethlehem and he is invited to join a flock of birds flying south to visit the baby. On their way they meet shepherds, angels and wise men and come up with their own unique present for Jesus.

With a simple script that's straight forward to stage and 7 catchy songs that are fun to sing and easy to learn, this is an ideal Christmas musical for younger children to perform. 

A Performance Licence is required to perform A Little Bird Told Me. You are able to purchase an Instant Performance Licence when you purchase this product, or a Standard Performance Licence at any time. For more information, please see below.

There are 22 speaking parts in this production. This can easily be increased by splitting the narrator's and the birds' lines between more children.


The least number of performers is 23. This would require a teacher taking the narrator's part; only 4 birds; only 3 milky way stars (who would double up as a shepherd, and Mary and Joseph); the dove would double up as the star; and there would be no scene-setters.


Whole school: Have as many birds, milky way stars, shepherds, sheep, angels and scene-setters as you like.
