Details

About Superstar

  • From the author of best-selling Christmas plays Children Of The World and The Magical Christmas Jigsaw
  • Adaptable script for large-group performances
  • Written with narration at the beginning of scenes so that scenes can be rehearsed separately
  • Available with a Words on Screen™ v2 CD ROM allowing you to display song lyrics on any whiteboard, computer screen, television or interactive touchscreen. The lyrics synchronize with the music as it plays making them easy to teach and easy to learn!

Each member of the school Celestial Choir is vying to dazzle music teacher Mr Marrz, hoping to be awarded a ‘superstar’ role in this year’s Christmas play. To her surprise Stella - who often gets things wrong but always tries her very best – is picked to play the part of the Star of Bethlehem because she understands the heart of the Christmas message. 

As the special performance unfolds, the children shine a light on the traditional Christmas story and point to Jesus being the true superstar of Christmas. 

With 8 upbeat songs and a fabulous script, Superstar is a dazzling Christmas play for the primary age group. 


A Performance Licence is required to perform Superstar. 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 64 parts in total, which can easily be increased by adding more stars, shepherds, angels, stable animals and courtiers and can easily be decreased as suggested below. There are 58 speaking parts, but these can easily be reduced (30 being the minimum) by using five of the stars as the five narrators (the rest of the stars could double up on parts and become some of the travellers); you could adapt the script and lose some of the travellers’ lines; Mr Marrz could double up as Joseph; the three innkeepers could double up as three shepherds with the eight lines distributed between them; the angels’ speaking parts could be reduced from four to two.
