Not an "instant" Christmas pageant... Dec 18, 2008
We are going to be presenting this program in church Sunday morning. First of all, let me say that this is a great program. It's hilarious, and the carols are familiar enough for the congregation to sing along. I do like the fact that the songs, speaking parts and sound effects are pre-recorded. However, this is not an "instant" Christmas pageant. The costume and scenery work are quite extensive, and there are a lot of actions for the kids to learn. It's going to be great when we present it, but I wouldn't recommend purchasing this unless you're ready to put in some hard work and have really dedicated kids, and a hard-working support staff. If you do, this will turn out just fine. :-)

We haven't used it yet, but it appears to be well done and a good resource
Great productions for your fumbly bumbly Angels!!! Feb 7, 2008
The Fumbly Bumbly Angels Christmas Pageant is a great production for your fumbly bumbly children. This is a low stress production; no dialogue to memorize, simple staging and costuming and it includes enough congregational traditional carol singing to get everyone into the holiday spirit.
Love this series! Jan 22, 2008
I love this series of 5 books!! Each one offers a different perspective on the Christmas story. This one is told by 4 Fumbly, Bumbly angels who want to sing in the "Heavenly Choir" but sing at a stable in Bethlehem instead! Each book comes with a CD with all the music and spoken lines on it. All children do is act along with what is being said on the CD. Audience members are encouraged to participate through singing as well. The costumes are super easy to make and there are great tips for adjusting the program to fit the number of actors. I love all 5 of these books and HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for an easy to do, fun and professional looking Christmas Pageant for children!
Great for churches looking for an easy and fun Program! Nov 18, 1998
I am currently working with the memebers of our church to present this play. It has been a breeze. Practices were easy and the children could work more on staging and facial features instead of the lines. Maybe after a few more practices we will try them doing the lines!!!
