We have hit Christmas with a bang in our house by heading to the Liverpool Empire and watching Nativity! The Musical last week.
Thanks to Liverpool Empire for review tickets – all views and opinions our own.
In the words of my daughter below – it was stunning! A Strictly Come Dancing reference if ever I heard one!
The stage production is a spin off from the much-loved festive film series Nativity!, Nativity 2: Danger In The Manger! and Nativity 3: Dude Where’s My Donkey?! Nativity! The Musical is also written by Debbie Isitt, the creator of these much loved family films which have aways been a huge hit in our house. If you haven’t seen the films and can’t make the show why not add these to your Christmas list.

The show is lively bright, cheerful and definitely worth booking tickets for. Your kids (and you) will love it!
It’s left Liverpool now but has moved onto Glasgow, followed by Milton Keynes, Stoke on Trent and Oxford all before Christmas. You can book tickets here.
Lipkin (as Mr Poppy) was the star of the show. The kids loved him and hubby thought his banter and energy brought the show to life. There were jokes for the kids and jokes for the adults and generally fun for everyone. Garnham and Emmerdale’s Adam Thomas were also excellent but the use of local children was incredible and gave the show an additional dimension and overwhelming engagement from the audience. For the Liverpool leg of the tour, local kids who were chosen from open auditions held at the Empire and the Oakmoor School children were played by Gracie Booth, Elizabeth Nelson, Zara Baptiste, Lewis Bhola, Tyana Millington, Riley White, Lochlan White, Lexy Dawbarn, Isla Curry, Porsha Hoyland Lau, Erin Rose Byrne, Charlie Wakefield, Libby Williams and Cameron Jones.
If you haven’t watched the films over and over again like we have then Nativity tells the story of two rival schools competing to have the best Christmas production and at St Bernadettes’s they are trying doubly hard as they want to win the attention of a Hollywood producer.
There are mishaps and upsets and the inevitable near misses before a perhaps predictable but truly wonderful conclusion.
The Natvity! Musical features all the sing-a-long hits from the movies including Sparkle and Shine, Nazareth, One Night One Moment, She’s the Brightest Star and a whole host of new songs filled with the spirit of Christmas,
