AlterNativity Musical new 'pop' musical nativity for schools, theatres and churches

AlterNativity is a refreshingly new modern version of the traditional Christmas Story, written by Jill Priest.

Suitable for large casts within schools, theatre groups or churches, it tells the nativity via a witty script interspersed with 13 'pop' songs in different music genres - from rapping angels and R&B sheep, to boy-band shepherds and Bollywood wise men. Written originally for a cast of 90 at Fleetville Jrs in St Albans, the musical has also been performed by Harpenden Young HeArts and, in December 2012, by the OVOTeens at the Maltings Arts Theatre.

AlterNativity is now published on and is available to other organisations to perform. It offers:

• A nativity that’s a little different to the usual
• Something suitable for a large cast
• Something cool enough for an older cast
• Music that is culturally-relevant that young adults want to perform
• A truthful account of the nativity in an accessible way
• A humorous show to thoroughly entertain an audience
• A musical that showcases talented performers
• A production where every cast member plays a part
• A well-structured, entertaining script
• A production that is easy to rehearse
• A production package that helps every step of the way, from costume ideas to demo DVD
• Professional-sounding, chart-style backing tracks
