INCREASING THE CAST SIZE
There are 21 speaking parts in this Christmas play, but these can easily be increased by:

  • splitting the three hosts’ lines between lots of children
  • splitting the 3 shepherds’ lines between up to 15 children
  • splitting the three innkeepers’ lines between six children, although Innkeeper 1 needs to take all of the lines on page 16.
For increasing the number of non-speaking parts, have as many townspeople, angels, shepherds, sheep, backing singers and innkeepers as you like.


DECREASING THE CAST SIZE
The minimum number of children that you could perform this Christmas play with is 26, but that would require:

  • having just two hosts
  • having just one floor manager who would also take on the voiceover role
  • having just six townspeople who would double up as the kings and camels
  • having just two angels, four shepherds and four sheep. These parts would need to double up as the Star, 6 backing singers and 3 innkeepers.
