Last chance to see Nativity! The Musical as the festive family show returns for its final year in London!
This Christmas join the legendary Sharon Osbourne, father and daughter Danny* and Dani Dyer, TV and radio presenter Rylan Clark-Neal* and West End star Simon Lipkin as he reprises his role as ‘Mr Poppy’ in the hit show.
Adapted for the stage by Debbie Isitt, the creator of the much-loved films and featuring all of your favourite 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, this musical really ‘is a heartfelt hit’ (The Times).
Every child in every school has one Christmas wish, to star in a Nativity, and at St Bernadette’s School they’re attempting to mount a musical version! Only trouble is teacher Mr Maddens has promised that a Hollywood producer is coming to see the show to turn it into a film. Join him, his teaching assistant the crazy Mr Poppy, hilarious children and a whole lot of sparkle and shine as they struggle to make everyone’s Christmas wish come true.
Back with more performances than ever before, book now for this ‘feel-good bonanza’ (Daily Telegraph), and join us for some MAYHEM in Bethlehem!
Nativity! The Musical reviews
Excellent show. Would highly recommend to people of all ages, most definitely a must see.
The actual showand cast was amamazing. Unfortunately I was distracted by the late arrival of many people coming to the show who strolled in at diffferent times with no care for others; talking, taking ages to be seated etc. During the show many poeple were taking photos/videos of the show, standing up and looking at their phones. The family in fornt of us kept standing up, blocking my and my famailies view and the father was watching a football match on his phone so very distracting.
Was an amazing show. Only downfall was they didnt do the song dudes wheres my donkey (show was based on 1st movie). Kids sat and watched every part with excitement.
Mr poppy and the show was great. What was really really disappointing was no Sharon Osbourne! We had purposely come on to see Sharon and she wasn't there. Aware we all have issues but Feel let down
Great cast shame Rylan and Sharon weren’t there. The Dyers were wooden but ok. The professional cast were fantastic. Kids were brilliant.
I would recommend anyone young or old to see this musical it was fantastic from start to finish my grandsons were memorised by it , and then to top the night they actually got 2 autographs and a picture taken with Rylan Clark , they were over the moon with the whole night thank you
Celebrities were very poor only saw the 2 Dyers who were wooden and amateur. This was only just a bit better , thanks to Mr Poppy, from a local pantomime. Nice venue though.
Dissatisfied that Rylan and Danny Dyer were missing.Saving grace was the performance of children .Really brilliant.
Wonderful, feel good factor . Children were amazing. Even without the famous stars definitely worth seeing
My 10 year old and I were, as avid fans of all 3 Nativity films (particularly No.1) looking forward to the show. It did not disappoint! Great fun, great show! It kept true to the beloved film; Scott Garnham was marvellously similar to the original character played by Martin Freeman, and there were some glorious added shenanigans and ad-libs with "Mr Poppy"! My heart still hasn't recovered Mr Lipkin ❤️
We had a wonderful evening our first theatre show in london. It was amazing great view. Superb acting.
Fab Latest minute booking but well worth it, great show
Absolutely great performance
Amazing from start to finish, big round of applause to everyone, especially the children, would defo go and see again 😃😃
We booked the show as our children have seen the films and loved them. When they saw Rylan Clark was in the show then we decided to go and watch it on stage as they love him from the TV . The grandparents wanted to join too as they love the actor Danny Dyer and have heard from us that Nativity is a good film. Sadly for the kids and grandparents neither Rylan Clark nor Danny Dyer performed in our actual show, this was so disappointing as when we booked our tickets this wasn't known or we would have picked a different date! We kept waiting for them to appear on stage but were told by someone in the row beside us they weren't appearing that day!. The best performer by far for us was Mr Poppy, (Simon Lipkin )who stole the show, thank goodness for him. He is excellent
This was a perfect night out for Christmas. Entertaining and funny, familiar songs and very well executed. Would definitely recommend it. Hopefully there will be Nativity 2 next year!!!
The main stars billed in this only had cameo parts. It was quite amateurish
What a fabulous show! Lived up to every wishful expectation. The script was so well crafted. I admit we were enticed by the famous names, but the acting was soooo good by the not-so-famous, it would have been spectacular in any event because of their phenomenal talent. Mr Poppy was outstanding, full of energy, talent and had a brilliant script. Ryland was second to none, he was hilarious. Both Dyers were a pleasure to see, but I did feel that Linda and Shirley Carter were missing.....
Great show full of fun and laughter just what my family needed after the Christmas period.
This production was brilliant.
It was a great show but we were disappointed that Sharon Osbourne was not there!
The kids were great but the "stars", Danny Dyer, Danni Dyer, Sharon Osborne and Ryland were only used for promotion to get the audience, They were only on for a few minutes of poor acting.
Fantastic show ,so funny,family friendly ,my daughter said so much more funnier than the film...a great show to watch we loved it
The best actors in this show were the children and non celebrities. The "names" appearing were disappointingly hardly seen but obviously used to sell tickets. However, a very good venue and enjoyable evening.
Me and my daughter loved every moment she has always loved nativity films and this made her year I asked her when we where travelling back to Nottingham which was her favourite part and she said all of it was amazing that’s enough for me she didn’t take her eyes off the stage for the hole show make our Christmas, thanks to all the cast and crew 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
A brilliant show...laughed al the way through it. The kids were amazing and we loved Mr Poppy. It was a great production...highly recommend it, a great show for all ages!
We weren’t sure this performance would live up to the film version - but how wrong we were. It was absolutely fantastic. The performances were amazing especially Mr Poppy and the children. We loved every minute and would definitely recommend it.
We brought our 6 grandsons to see Nativity! It was so enjoyable ! Having watched the films several times we knew words to the songs & were all joining in! Hope u didn't mind!!! Watching all the incredible actors, the singers & dancers were amazing. I had tears rolling down my cheeks!!😂🤣😂🤣 Please thank all the amazing stars who performed . What an enjoyable time spent with our grandsons!! Thankyou!!! 😁 karen (grandma)
The musical was funny, the kids and adults both enjoyed the show. I would say that it was a bit too long for my 5 year old. I would say book for under 7’s if you think they can sit still for an hour and a bit before an interval! Lots of young children become restless!! The actors were all brilliant, glad we went to the 2pm show
It was a wonderful performance but very disappointed that Danny Dyer was not playing on the night we were there, apparently it was written in the small print when I made the booking but I didn’t see it so maybe next time it would be good if you could make it more clear about who will be playing before the booking is made, however the children really enjoyed it, it was only us adults that seemed to miss seeing Danny !
Loved every minute
This was the first time seeing the show in London but have seen twice at my local theatre and thought it was great, unfortunately can’t say the celebrity element added much to an already great cast apart from Rylan who was made to play Mr Burns.
Brilliant musical. The kids and Mr Poppy were great. Less can the said for the stars of the show which I'm sure were paid ridiculous money to deliver a few lines.
Staff at the Apollo treated us to a great evening and looked after us so well. The cast were brilliant, we had such a great evening. Well done all concerned.
Masses of energy and apparent enjoyment from the cast. The children were amazing. Very enjoyable
From start to finish absolutely the best show ever and the kids were amazing. Definitely a 5 star review!!
Took my 8 & 5 year old to see this. They loved it. Very funny and if your kids like the film they’ll really enjoy this too. Mr Poppy is fantastic. Lots of singing and dancing to really get you in the Christmas spirit. A feel good musical.
The Nativity the Musical was a fab afternoon of slapstick humour and song. The children in the production were amazing and equally the stars of the show. We were sad to not see Danny Dyer as he was having a matinee afternoon off but his stand in did a pretty good job. We absolutely loved Rylan who got the biggest ovation at the end.
Amazing may daughter an I loved it all the cast were amazing but the children and me poppy made it for us 😀👍🏼
If you like the film this is 100 times better, so well cast everyone of them, they are amazing. The children's singing and performance is brilliant. My two children aged 11 and 12 and my wife and I agree it is the best show we have seen.
It was brilliant
What a fabulous show! Mr Poppy wS fantastic! As well as all the cast. A great family feel good show!
What a wonderful uplifting show. The set, the cast, everything was spectacular.
We enjoyed it, the children were amazing. The diversions from the story in the film were odd and unnecessary. Mr Poppy was fab but other adults were not great and seemed to be cast wrong. A lot of time was wasted on trying to get the famous people involved in the story when the point of the story is the children and the songs. Some parts were outstanding and I’m glad we went.
We went on Boxing Day, great show, family friendly fun. We all loved Mr Poppy he was a axing !!! Would definitely recommend going.
Great show, lots of fun for whole family!
A fantastic show, talented cast and children. A mix between a panto and a West end musical. Thoroughly enjoyed.
