This tells the story of a group of young schoolchildren who are preparing a local farmer's barn for the Christmas Nativity

Having tidied the place up, the children paint pictures of their favourite animals to complete the Christmas card scenery for the evening's show

After they leave the barn, a group of animals appear and recognise themselves in the children's paintings

They are not impressed!

The kindly Professor (a sheepdog) feels that they should watch the play that the children are to perform and see what it is all about

Some of the animals are not in agreement with this, especially when they hear that the children will be dancing and singing as well but then the Star appears and tells them that this is a true story with a very important meaning

And so the animals watch the nativity, assisted by the Star's narrative and realise the importance of the Christmas Story

The play contains 27 parts plus a choir and ten beautiful songs
