Grades K-6 • “Starry Night, Noisy Night” is a charming Christmas musical for unison/opt. two-part voices filled with humorous references to modern distractions that prevent us from experiencing the true meaning of Christmas. The story is told from the stable animals’ point of view: Cows annoyed by the bright starlight; Sheep spending so much time watching the activity outside the stable they almost miss the miraculous scene unfolding before them; and Chickens too busy pecking out IMs to receive the message conveyed by the birth of Christ. The musical ends on a quiet, reverent, and worshipful note, turning away from life’s distractions to celebrate God’s great gift of love. This work is appropriate for performance by 10–12 children, or many more. Everything that you need to prepare this musical is included: staging directions; a list of characters, costumes, and props; and a mixed-media CD with reproducible singers’ pages with dialog, and full performance and accompaniment tracks.
