The Nativity

An enchanting Nativity in a barn in the depths of Suffolk’s beautiful countryside.

The county search for a baby Jesus begins!

At Christmas you expect to be searching the land for the lady whose foot fits the glass slipper but that isn’t the case in Suffolk. The hunt is on for a newborn baby.

Never one to shirk a challenge, Suffolk born artistic director Rebecca Darcy is producing one of the most magical and ambitious projects this Christmas. Ignoring the old adage 'Never work with children or animals, Rebecca and her team of fellow professional performers will be working with both and even hope to have a baby involved! Rebecca has previously directed and choreographed performances that have pushed the boundaries, including, 'Starlight Express', where the cast of under 21s performed the whole show on roller skates in a disused aircraft hangar. Rebecca Darcy says ‘The thing that excites me most about working in the theatre industry is the daredevilry. The most captivating performances for the audience, production team and cast are those that are risky and ambitious. '

A small, draughty, thatched barn in the depths of Suffolk’s beautiful countryside provides the most atmospheric arena in which to tell the greatest of all stories. Prior to the performance you can indulge in a warm mulled wine as you watch the arrival of Mary and Joseph who will welcome you into the barn, where you can snuggle up on bales of hay, under your own blankets and fleeces as the story unfolds.

The search is on for the supporting cast and children aged 5-16 can enrol in a one day workshop where they will prepare their performances for the Nativity. Rebecca is also looking for a newborn baby to star as baby Jesus. ‘My aim is to make the production as realistic as possible.’ Says Rebecca.

If you have a child who would like to perform in this truly magical experience there will be a musical theatre workshop day where they can learn new skills and perform in one of the performances too.

The performances are on Saturday 15th December only and tickets are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment. These can be booked via our website
